Hey everyone, I'm trying to replicate the iOS Messages App's "select text" feature as seen below:

Particularly, I want the **zoomed in bubble** to show up on any location when I press and hold. I'm not sure where to begin though.

It's not perfect but it will get you started :)

Thanks so much Marc Krenn!!!

Great :)

I was trying to improve it - mainly by using z instead of scale - but it's still not perfect. Tbh it bugs me quite a bit! :/

Ah, yeah my implementation also bothers me. It works for full screen objects, but as soon as I try to use other dimensions, it doesn't work as well.

Can you share your file?

Chris Aga

This one?

Or do you mean the one I'm working on right now?
That one's a full fledged app prototype.

Chris Aga

I'm pretty close, I'm just gonna put in static values for now since I only need the magnification in one place in the app. Might make it dynamic once I finish the whole prototype.

Marc Krenn

Yeah, I was talking about the other one. I assume you can't share it due to NDA, right?
