The part of the image that is displayed after zooming in or out may not fill the whole screen. Use Fill to increase the amount of the image that is displayed to fill the screen.
Some Scan2CAD functions only operate on the part of the image you can see on the screen. See individual function descriptions.

Where a zoomed view only takes up part of the screen, Fill increases the amount of the image that is displayed to fill the screen. Subsequent uses of Fill shrink what is displayed slightly so you can see more of the image on the screen.

 

For example, if you zoom into the area enclosed by the red rectangle below:

 

Only the exact area you have chosen will be displayed on the screen:

 

If you use Fill the zoomed area will be expanded to fill the screen:

 

If you use Fill again, the view will be demagnified slightly so you can see more of the image on the screen:
