Little zoom proxy

The visibility of the little zoom proxy should always be optional.

The little zoom proxy should be moveable.

The little zoom proxy should be re-sizable.

The little zoom proxy should handle very wide or very tall images (such as panoramas) intelligently.

One approach to the latter is to fix the size of the floating proxy rectangle, then scale the image proxy itself within that rectangle. In my experience that is the way most image zoom proxies behave: fixed rectangle, image resizing inside of it.

Another benefit of such an approach is that zoom controls and proxy visibility controls can be placed directly on the proxy.

The Corel PSP "Overview" is a good example of what is possible. It is floatable, dockable, resizeable, has it's own little toolbar and window controls.

The topic is the tiny scroll-bars replicas, not the zoom slider…
I've this too, and wonder to know why and what it's useful for ???

Sorry... I misunderstood.

Mr Moderator, please split my response to another thread?

Errare…

:) Hello John !

• «Errare humanum est», thus you are forgiven ! :D

• The only snag is that Pierre didn't answer the topic, we dare hope he'll do …

• BTW : I agree that the zoom slider is also too small and like you said could be at least resizable…

- Whether you'ld post that, I'ld indeed support your griping ! ;)
