The idea behind Magnifier is to make real magnification of the image/text by importing an image on lowest level and scaling its size to 50% and placing a copy of the same image but at 100% on the layer above as masked layer. A magnifying lens would be created on layer above that as masking layer. We will make a circular area image on the masked layer in the shape of magnifying glass, convert it to movie clip, and add invisible button to activate Drag Movie Clip action, (assuming you have pre knowledge about it), you will be ready to go.
Before you go one you may like to know that you cannot drag a movie clip on a MASK layer. I found help for this one on the polar-lights.com/en/ site in some source files "How to drag a mask?" I will explain in this tutorial a way around that limitation.
