Description Steve Swanson 2021-08-19 03:02:20 UTC

Before the upgrading to 21.08.0, I was able to switch the view from "Zoom to Fit" to "Actual Size" by using the "F" keyboard shortcut. This would also center the Actual Size view on the mouse position, so if I wanted to see a particular portion of an image in Actual Size I could view the full image, move the mouse to the area I was interested in, and then switch to Actual Size via keyboard shortcut to see it in detail. I could then use the same keyboard shortcut to zoom back out and view the entire image.

1. Move mouse to portion of image I'm interested in seeing in Actual Size
2. Use the keyboard shortcut to switch to Actual Size
3. (Optionally) use keyboard shortcut to switch back to Fit

In step 2, image is shown in Actual Size but ignores mouse position
In step 3, keyboard shortcut no longer works as a toggle (must use 2 different keyboard shortcuts)

Work the way it used to: I move mouse to a part of the image, hit the "F" key and the view changes to Actual Size centered on that part of the image. Hitting "F" key again toggles back to the Fit view.

Oddly enough, if I use the middle mouse button to switch to Actual Size, it works like it used to. Maybe the easiest solution would be to add a keyboard shortcut for whatever the middle mouse button does?
