Problem with Zoom Out

Hi All --

After zooming in on Geogebra 3D, is there a way to restore the coordinate axes to their original dimension without losing the image?

Here's a link to the file I'm working on: https://www.geogebra.org/3d...

I can't zoom out to the original [-7,7] x [-7, 7] x [-2,5] coordinate axes dimension without the xy plane receding to the bottom of the screen, which results in losing the image of the plane completely. Any way to un zoom and preserve the images generated in the expression bar?

Thanks!

HI --

Another way of asking this question: is there a way to keep the x and y axes symmetrical as you zoom out? At some angles, as I zoom out, the axes skew either positive or negative, and I can't figure out how to keep them symmetrical.

Thanks!

HI Again --

Figured it out! "The position of your click determines the center of zoom." Right there in the docs.

have you tried zoomin(-7,-7,-2,7,7,5) ?

Hi Mathmagic --

I didn't know such a command existed. Thanks for bringing it to my attention!

I'm an experienced Desmos user, so my impulse was to try and set the axis intervals in Geogebra's "Settings." From now on, I'll start looking for commands to accomplish tasks in Geogebra that would be normally accomplished in Desmos' "Settings".

Thanks for the help!
