Post by user0 »

Suggestion

Improve Zoom controls in Viewer StatusBar:
A B
  • add slider
  • replace complex zoom-out/in icons with simple minus (–) and plus (+) symbols
C
  • change textbox to editable combobox with all predefined values (including 'Real size') from current 'Zoom' menu
D
  • add 3 buttons to switch between zoom manual/auto modes:
    - Lock zoom - manual_locked - remain zoom when switch to prev/next image
    - 1:1 - manual - reset zoom to 100% when switch to prev/next image
    - Auto zoom - auto - depends on settings
    these buttons also work as indicators to see what mode is in use

Re: Zoom - improve Zoom controls in Viewer status bar

IMHO default zoom level is something I set once in the options and then never touch again.

If I feel the need to fiddle with the zoom level, I simply use my mouse-wheel.
