If you have used Microsoft Publisher you know it can be a pain to change between the large view and close-up. You could use the Zoom selection at the top and keep changing it between 100% and whatever percentage that will fit your project. This takes time and can be tedious if you forget the best percentage. Instead click on the item you want to zoom in on. Then hit the F9 button on the top of your keyboard. This will switch you between a close-up and, if you hit it again, an overall view. This does not seem like it will save you anytime but just give it a try and see if it helps.
