im sorry but can we please have a response of why we can't have this? obviously there has been a huge request for it... for many years. Is it something to expect in the coming 8 versions? please?

No joke.......

A quicker way to zoom in and out (auto centering at the mouse-over point) is a must have

better zooming options for sure. But the mouse scroll? I like when zooms are controlled by pressing a key modifyer while dragging a box to define the desired zoomed area. if the 'box' held the dimensions of the screen while dragging, etc.

everybody likes to do things differently. in a perfect world we would have every zoom option available in a single program.
however (and for the sake of this thread), I will say that for me personally, out of the plethora of different programs I have used over all of these years, scroll wheel zooming is by far the fastest and most efficient tool for lightning fast audio editing. I have been using Reaper a lot lately because of it's native scroll wheel zooming and it's high resemblance to all of the old Sonic Foundry products that I used to love so much.

im going to ask again, dev's of ableton... this is obviously a popular concern... could any of you spare a minute or two maybe explaining why we can't have it yet...?

Shrug.

who else finds it kind of troubling that this is not being addressed?

I don't get it, really. i mean, REALLY.

I remember having a 3rd party add on for Live called Vitmain L or something that would actually add lots of shortcuts and expanded control features to Live, including mouse-wheel zooming. Anyone tried it lately or know if it works with Live 8??

...and should idealy zoom centered on your view ... the overview navigator at the top becomes unusuable as the visible box gets too fiddly....

:oops:

I just noticed:
below the overview, but above the arrangement, that little grey area....
move your mouse there, behold the looking glass,
click+hold+drag = zoom zoom zoom!

8O

but yeah thorough mousewheel implementation throughout all the menus and whatnots is of the essence!
