I want to Zoom in on the Preview in any Filter
Searched three fora: this, General, and <I forget>. I looked for a Developer thread thinking this might already be a requested feature, but did not find one.

When I have a filter window open, most often there is a "preview" window--of fixed size--which I can pan, but not so far not figure out how to zoom to see detail.

I wish I may I wish I might:
- be able to resize the "preview" window
- be able to zoom in to see the effects of the filter better

?
Thanks,
gramp

RE: I want to Zoom in on the Preview in any Filter
All depends on what the developer of your specific filter did to handle that. Resizing the whole filter dialog may enlarge the preview window. I don't know of any that allows zooming, but beyond 1:1 you mostly see the crap Smile

One of the reasons there is a preview window in the filter it to reduce the amount of computation done for the preview. if you preview on a large image, things get slow rather quickly.
