Submitted to Tanya Staples at firstname.lastname@example.org on Sunday, 9/16/01.
Please submit your Painter 7 problems to Tanya in an appropriately similar format to that which you see below, including all steps and all pertinent details.
My system specs:
Miscellaneous Zoom Tests:
1. Opened 2000
x 2000 Canvas, 300 ppi.
4. Stretched the image window. Canvas was about 1/16" x 1/16". Top of image window read "0%". Scale slider number was 100%.
5. Used Ctrl+M
to Maximize the image window. Scale slider not visible.
the Magnifier tool. Canvas was now too large for my screen but Scale slider,
scroll bars, and icons remained visible.
By now, along with others demonstrated above, the problem of scaling in increments of 10% has been clearly shown to be not working in even a remotely sensible manner.
Another very experienced Painter 7 user tells me that when an image that is 600 x 800 is opened and either double-click on the Grabber tool or Window > Zoom to Fit is used (this works on his Win2000 system), the Canvas is too tall to fit within his Painter screen while an image that is 800 x 600, when either double-click on the Grabber tool or Window > Zoom to Fit is used, fits the Canvas within his Painter 7 screen. He comments that both double-click on the Grabber tool or Window > Zoom to Fit only take into account the Width of the Canvas, not its Height. Since neither double-clicking the Grabber tool nor using Window > Zoom to Fit works for me, I can't test this. I will request that he submit his system specs and all other details to Tanya Staples in order that her QA people can work on these problems and include appropriate fixes in the next patch.
Sincerely and hopefully,
