    The zoom slider in the Navigator window is very difficult to control.
    The *slightest* mouse movement causes image size to jump by 20% or more.
    I know I can type a value in the input field and it would be nice if it
    would respond to mouse-wheel adjustments, but it doesn't: the value
    changes, but the image preview doesn't.

    Is there a keyboard option (alt/ctrl/?) that makes this control easier
    to use? I can't find one.

    Jason Warren asks ...
    I usually double-click the Hand Tool to fill the screen, then to
    increase in even increments type cntrl-spacebar-left click, to decrease
    type alt-space-left click. The advantage of this is it's easy to get
    to 25 and 50%, which shows the file much cleaner than odd %'s due to
    the way the interpolation is done. I'm sure there are other ways ...
