How to replicate

Workaround (if any)


Product: FMPA 64-bit

OS: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit (10.0.16299 Build 16299)

Hardware: Dell Precision Workstation T5400, Intel Xeon E5430, GeForce GTX 460

Description: when trying to use CTRL + mousewheel to zoom in or out on a layout, it seems to only work when hovering the mouse over certain objects on the layout. I have recorded a video in 16 and 17 to show the difference in behavior.


One odd thing is on list view the zooming works as expected, but in form view it only works over certain objects (portals, containers, web viewers). Browse mode also changes the behavior even more where hovering over portals sometimes works and sometimes doesn't when using this zoom method.


How to replicate: hold CTRL+ mousewheel up/down on a layout.


Workaround: use F3 / SHIFT + F3 instead.
