Welcome to the forums!
Just in case there is confusion on how zooming works.
- Rotating the mouse wheel forward will zoom in on the location of your cursor
- Rotating the mouse wheel back will zoom out.
- If you right click + drag, you are able to pan around in the circuit.
Now, based on your description it sounds like the board you are trying to align is far too large to be printed on the V-One and the pads are appearing outside the print preview. Is that the case? Are you able to share your Gerber files?
If the board dimensions are normal, then can you share a screenshot of the problem? (in a zoomed out view)
One more thing - During alignment you do need 2 references. The software will automatically pick the first one for you but you can override the selection by clicking on a different pad. The software will try to pick pads that are small and far apart, normally choosing drill holes over pads, but sometimes it doesn’t get it quite right.
