I have a large mind-map.

If I zoom to fit to page, I can no longer zoom in. Counter-intuitively, if I zoom out, the image gets bigger (!); it gets magnified to 400%.

My user model if this is that Freeminds is relying on the relative position of 'user defined' zoom in the menus. In other words, 'user defined' is the last ('biggest') entry in the menu. If you ask for 'zoom out' (make smaller), this bumps you up a cell in the menu, so 'user-defined' goes to 400% (interestingly, if you ask for zoom-in at 400% it stops there).

    Windows XP SP2; I get the same result. Zoom in and zoom out (and the shortcut keys) are moving the selected zoom up and and down the list, which has paradoxical results after "zoom to fit" because the zoom then goes to "user defined" at the end of the list so there is no possible zoom in and zoom out first takes you to 400% (which is usually bigger) and then onto lower zooms.
