Description Jon R Kibler 2014-11-27 13:49:46 UTC
The last used zoom factor for each view needs to be remembered. This is especially true for notes view. Switching form slide view to notes view, you have to always resume the notes view. This really is something that the system should remember, so every time you switch views, you don't have to change zoom.

Zoom settings should really be saved for every view.

It would be nice to be able to change the zoom factor for the slide sorter view, too.

When switching between different slide views the zoom value for each view is not remembered. As a result, every time a user navigates away from a given view and then back to it, the zoom she has previously set for it is lost.

Steps to reproduce:

1) Select a slide in the presentation and select the "Notes" view* - The zoom by default is set to certain percentage that makes the content (slide and notes) fit the height of the window.
2) Increase or decrease the value of zoom significantly
3) Switch to the “Normal” view and then back again to the "Notes" view – The previously set zoom was not remembered, instead the content is again reset to fit the window size.

*This behavior is the same for views: "Normal", "Outline", "Notes" and "Handout". Whenever user switches between the views, the zoom value is reset. The "Slide Sorter" view does not have a zoom option at all.

Expected result:

- The zoom should be remembered for every view independently and restored upon switching to that view.
- The "Slide Sorter" view should have the option of zooming and remembering the zoom value as well.

Both of these expected behaviors can be observed in Microsoft's Power Point.

The problem with the missing zoom option in "Slide Sorter" view is already a confirmed bug:
