I don't even know how to google this so I'm asking you guys. What the heck do you call that pinchy thing you do on the screen make things bigger or smaller? You know? Like on a phone? There has to be a name for it.

Exactly. I can just see it now. "THAT DOESN'T WORK!"

I gesture the screen quite frequently, but I only use 1 finger. (usually at Castanet posters.) :up: (not that one)

I'd call it pinch zoom if anything.

I'm glad you didn't call dumb a feeling, lol.
I recall one time a co-worker told me they felt dumb, and I told them that dumb is not a feeling.
