How to use trackpad on laptop to zoom in probe exploration window

Hello there!

I am trying to play Eve on my laptop and hence, by using the laptop’s trackpad.

The axtivity where I have encountered most struggles was exploration - when trying to use probes in the probing window, I am trying to zoom in and out of the map (on a normal pc, this would be done using a mouse’s scroll wheel) by the pinch gesture on the trackpad.

However, the pinch gesture does not zoom in/out in the probe window, but just repositions all the probes that are present. Therefore, if I have probes deployed, I cannot efficiently position them on signatures for scanning.

How can I change this trackpad behaviour?

Thank you for the time taken to answer,


Not sure if it works, but have you tried keybinds?

You can set keybinds for zooming in and out (rather than using scroll wheel) in space if I recall correctly, maybe that works for the probe window too?

esc - shortcuts - general - zoom in, zoom out.

Works in system map
