Which zoom level am I on?

On the canvas, underneath the Run button, there are zoom out and zoom in buttons. It would be lovely if between them existed a number box indicating the current zoom level of the canvas. This would operate much like my web browser, which typically shows 100% unless I have zoomed in or out. Bonus points if the button is clickable to reset to the default zoom level.

Upon reading this, I've just discovered that you can right click to get to the normal zoom level:




And from the hot-keys it looks like ctrl + (1-5) control zoom levels, although I use ZoomIt which has control of these hotkeys!

@Joe_LipskiNot sure how your comment follows the idea.

Sorry @seven, i think read and went off down my own path, missing that the main ask was for the zoom % level to be displayed!


Thanks for helping me learn something new anyway! And I've just noticed now that the last item in the screenshot is actually a container, so can right click the canvas and zoom to one of your containers 🙂
