Magnify at different levels

Contributed by: Scot Hacker
This tip is valid for: Both BeOS and Haiku

[Editor’s note: The Magnify app is much improved in R4, and this tip is no longer necessary, though it does still work. It may potentially be useful from within scripts, etc.]

If Magnify’s 32×32 window is too large or too small, try launching it from the command line with a size argument, e.g.:

Magnify 4
Magnify 64

Magnify’s zoom factor is 8 pixels to one; this ratio is not customizable from the command line.
