Adobe Illustrator Zoom around selected, not to screen centre?

Command (Cntrl) and = gives zoom in, in Adobe Illustrator.

Is there a way to set it so that it zooms to the selected object rather than the centre of the screen?


I built the following scripts to replace Ctrl+1 (zoom to 100%).
When nothing is selected, it will center the view to centerpoint of active artboard.
When one or more elements are selected, it will center the view on the object(s) centerpoint.


GitHub repo created to host these adobe scripts to handle the functionality described:

Save the linked code into your scripts folder (assuming default install location of Adobe 2017 for Windows 10): C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator CC 2017\Presets\en_US\Scripts.

*Additional note: I’ve also created some AutoHotkey scripts to help Windows users with creation of hotkeys to execute these scripts easier. I’ll update this post when they’ve been added to the repo.
