Description ernsts 2005-10-23 22:48:42 UTC
There is a feature e.g. available on the Logitech RX300 mouse, that allows to 
zoom the display by pushing the middle mouse button/wheel (a magnifying glass 
appears), releasing it, zooming to the desired level and pushing the middle 
button again. This is supported by a lot of applications (Internet explorer, 
Acrobat reader, MS Office viewers, ...).
In some rare cases it even works in CALC, but not good enough to be usable. It 
would be nice if this would be supported by OOo.

IMHO holding the CTRL key and using the mouse wheel is sufficent so this Issue
should be closed. But requirements have to decide.
