The feature you are talking about is called ‘Animated Zoom’ (it’s Mac only feature).
It is turned ON by default on Mac machines having a GPU card with a compatible monitor attached.
Check the Document Name in its tab – does it say ‘GPU Preview’? If not, press Shift+E to switch to this mode.
Also, check under Preferences > GPU Performance and see if ‘Animated Zoom’ is checked ON. It should be enabled for this feature to work.

Same problem... This has to be a bug since it was broken with me and then after the second update of ID CC 2019 it _was_ working again for some time. But now it's broken again and can't select 'animated zoom'. Rolling back a version and updating again sadly doesn't work.
Got a brand new MacBook Pro with the right requirements.
What to do??
