Zoom toolbar % or
« on: September 01, 2006, 08:42:33 PM »
I tried a demo version of PM 4 that was on a lexar card I just bought, I liked it so much I bought it. Anyway I think in the demo version I tried the zoom tool bar was in increments of 25% 50% 75% 100% and so on. Now the zoom bar shows increments 1/4 1/2 3/4 1 2 3 etc. Is this the new standard or am I able to change the method of zoom ration to a %.

They're exactly the same thing.  1/4 = 25%, 1/2 = 50%, 3/4 = 75%, etc.  The reason for the change is because the older version went to 200% and the new one goes all the way up to 800% and there wasn't enough room in the slider for the increase in zoom levels if we spelled out the percentages.

Does that make sense?
