Double-click zoom

Seems to me that the double click event is unassigned when in the map canvas. Would be nice to be able to zoom in a step on the cursor position by double-clicking in the map, regardless of active tool (pan, info etc.).

Hello, bug triage...

I am not sure what to do with this feature request...

Apparently, double-click on canvas is still unaffected (perhaps for a good technical reason) in QGIS 2.13 master... But it is not necessarily a bad thing ! For zooming in, I prefer to use the mouse scroll wheel which is much more useful (I can zoom in/out, centered on the position of the mouse even when I am moving some features with edit tools).

What do you think about this ? Should we try to implement the double-click zoom in or kept the behaviour like it is now ? If it is technically complex to implement it, I suggest to close this feature request with a won't fix.

How about to have the double click activate a "secondary tool"?

Some users want a double click to be Zoom in, some might want it to be Zoom out and I am sure there are others. For our company it would even be a self-written tool. So why not give users the option to select a "secondary tool" that is fired upon double click?

I would agree that a secondary tool is even better. So for left-double-click and perhaps something even for the right-single-click too --
