Ok, here is another use case: I'm viewing a book that was scanned as multiple jpeg files. I want things to show full-size, because rescaling the images make them unreadable on my relatively small resolution. Clicking 1 each time I move to a new page is very annoying. I don't really need the option to be saved, but I think the zoom factor should be preserved when moving from one image to another. I could not get this to work. The zoom factor being less than 1, things were always scaled down. This is why I think the option and the separate and independant zoom control is a bit messy and confusing. I don't think re-adding the separate option for images bigger than the screen makes more sense, and what I really want is the "original size" and "fit to window" zoom buttons to retain their state when moving to the next image in the same folder. >> I don't see when scaling small images up would be useful, I always hit >> the 'original size' button when displaying it. >> > Again, that's why it's an option.

If we disable it by default, and everyone keeps it that way, I see little use for the option. >> Maybe the wording of the French >> translation is the problem, becausethe word for "stretch" also applies >> to "shrink". > Stretch is not meant to mean shrink, so yes, this seems to have been the > problem. I believe we do have a French version of Haiku, though ;-) Yes, that's the problem, in my French system the wording for the menu entry sounded like it should do what I expected, but that didn't work. The english version having a better distinction of stretch vs shrink, I can see this is wrong. Yet I want images to show 1:1 as an option, or at least as something that persists in a ShowImage session when navigating a directory. Would that be a better solution? -- Adrien.
