Use case: Workshops.

Zim books now are appreciated to be very good for interactive workshop 
presentations.The material may go into as much detail as needed with perfect 
hierarchical navigation. This is rated as complementary to otherwise read-only 
bulky PP advertisings.What about pictures?=====Photos and screenshots are 
already there to be embedded in a zim book. You may change their displayed size 
(thumbnail preview / (any medium size preview) / full-size version) with 
right-click "Edit Properties" dialog or Ctrl-E with the cursor at picture 
position. Good to know.What about vector graphics?=====Zim allows any 
application (OpenOffice suite, ...) and in particular of course inkscape for 
creating scalable vector graphics. Scaling the size is done equally as with 
other pictures. BTW, allow me to share a nice article in this context:  
10-tips-for-better-diagrams-in-inkscape  
http://lightcastletech.com/10-tips-for-better-diagrams-in-inkscape/Zooming 
in/out=====At presentations a common but still nifty feature is Ctrl "+" and 
Ctrl "-" for zooming in and zooming out. This is typically known by many other 
applications and browsers.--- But wait --- there is a difference.Ctrl-P saves a 
temporary html version of a zim page and invokes the browser on it. Within the 
browser the zooming in and zooming out works as expected, whereas within zim 
only font size is changed, not the embedded pictures or svg graphics.Because 
picture size is already there as locally configurable attribute of the linked 
picture I'd like to propose (a preferences switch?) to allow the 
synchronization of all picture sizes with the actual font zooming factor, given 
there is some default mapped to 100% (factor 1.0).Of course there is the work 
around with html export, but having this feature built in within zim would give 
it another asset with great benefit. What do you think?Best regards, and thanks 
a lot!,    Andreas
