FMP16 doesn't seem to have the zoom bar/view mode at the bottom of the window. (see screenshot)
Am I missing something?
This was removed intentionally in FM16. It was a highly requested removal from many developers.
The intention is to provide a cleaner user interface for end users and I am happy about this even though it changes how I need to zoom while developing.
Talk about baby out with the bathwater - why not just make it an optional removal?
We have just migrated from FMP15 and find this really annoying as it's something we use all the time.
It is annoying at first. It's just a case of re-training your muscle memory to use the keyboard shortcuts.
I was spewing that it was removed initially but now I'm glad
If one does one:one coaching, sitting on the side of a desk with only the mouse, keyboard in front of the one You’re coaching, You wont love that.. IMHO a ‘toggle’ would be great - as for other ‘bars’
You can still get to it from the menu.
I do not miss it at all and I am happy to see it gone.
Actually there's no way to get it from the menu. Certainly there are zoom keyboard shortcuts but nothing which retrieves the toolbar as previous.
And whilst you may not miss it, I very much do and I'm pissed that it's gone.
He means you can get to the zoom control from the menu, not that you can get the toolbar back.
this just shows that it is important to have a choice (from the users perspective). I mean, we have application preferences, we have settings per file..
