The left click to highlight an area to zoom in the chart is slightly non-intuitive: drag to lower AND right only. This does have the advantage of being able to cancel a zoom by dragging up/left. It would be nice to have a way to undo a zoom, to return to the previous view. The right click to zoom in/out in steps is not quite the same. The step zoom might be nice to have on the icon bar.

    I echo the sentiment about right-clicking to undo a zoom. It would be much better to have an unzoom button to back out of zooms much as in Zapper so that they will be the same as the zoom in.

    Click while dragging up and left now zooms out, instead of canceling, as described originally.

    Ideas for when the additional zoom functionality is implemented:

    1. Use standard Look & Feel buttons.
    2. Look again at what Zapper does.
    3. Zoom should be considered as a stackably undoable edit.
    4. Magnify at cross hairs?
    5. Settable zoom area (magnification) via drop-down menu or slider?
    6. On toolbar icon click-in, highlight zoom area, and on mouse button release, zoom.

    Reducing the priority for phase 1. This will be one of the first features added after phase 1.
