Description matthias.mueller-prove 2004-06-21 15:22:14 UTC
global available zooming functionality is key to successful working with OOo. 
Andrea Hampel already worked on a spec:

Hi Matthias, as you know, that feature was canceled for OO.o 2.0; you already
set the target milestone correctly, as we decided to consider this feature for
the next milestone release (OOo later). Thank you for reporting it.

I'm not sure why the option of setting independent zoom factors for each sheet 
in Calc comes under this issue.
I'm quite happy with how most of the menus etc. work, and I'm not sure making 
them work the same as the "competition" needs to be a priority issue.

Personally I think OpenOffice has no real competition.

But, I would like to be able to set an independent zoom factor for each sheet 
in Calc.
Not because the competition can do it, but because it is a very useful 

As an example of how it might be used, I repeat what I've said in other issues 
which have been marked as duplicates of this one:

For example, I have a file which contains several detailed sheets, one for each 
month of the year.  These sheets are large, and the ability to zoom out with 
one selection of the overall zoom factor is good.  But along with the monthly 
sheets, there is a summary sheet, which has less information.  To make the 
summary more readable, I want to set a different zoom factor for that sheet.  A 
local zoom factor that would ovreride the default zoom for the other shets, and 
would be saved with the file so it is remembered next time the file is loaded.

I'd just like to point out that the "duplicate" (*grr*) Issue 11354 has a
(645-based) patch to use the Print Preview's zoom combo box code in other apps.

MS Office 2007 has even introduced a zoom-slider bootom left for each document.

See Issue 75766, which is a more accurate categorization of this issue.

What is the current status of this issue?
Comment 16 bettina.haberer 2008-02-27 09:11:39 UTC
This issue is taken as issue number 2 concerning the improvement of the zooming
function. Issue 1598 covers it for the wordprocessor, this one might be taken
for spreadsheet and a further one for Impress. 
@Frank. As discussed, please take over this one.
Comment 17 frank.loehmann 2008-02-27 09:35:16 UTC
Calc, Draw and Impress will implement the same slider implemented for Writer,
after Beta, due to limited resources for integration.

Link to spec (work in progress) for Calc, Draw and Impress implementation of the
zoom slider:
