That makes a lot of sense. It should be a one-off event. Like all the View
| Zoom entries, you select it , it does it's job and good-bye, back to
where you were.
This is clearly more a view setting than a tool. It's in the tool menu
because it's a tool (in certain aspects of it's code) not because it acts
like a tool from a task oriented POV. It is in reality a view option. It
seems rather incongruous that this does not appear on the view menu.
If and when it does , it should probably go at the top. It seems much more
intuitive to grab the bit you want than to guess whether 15 or 18% would
be better for what you want to see and how it would center.
The number of entries in View|Zoom itself suggests some key functionality
is missing. I think that gap is the zoom tool, let's call it "Select Zoom".
It would be worth considering a separte entry in the view menu rather than
burying this one more level down. It's too useful to require complex
scrolling of submenus.
View | Select Zoom nice and fast, View | Zoom for all the gritty details
and specifics like Fit to window.
Good thinking Simon.
