Description

The zoom in/out buttons in print composer only currently allow zooming on the entire canvas. They don't help a user adjust an individual content item.

It appears the only way you can zoom in or out in individual content in Print Composer is to go to Item Properties and manually change the Scale field. Please provide some way to use the mouse to zoom in and out of individual content items, such as a map item.

the mouse wheel zoom the map object in print composer, does not work for you?

#2 Updated by Aren Cambre over 4 years ago

Just tried it, and it's really imprecise if you're not using a device that has a physical wheel, like if you're using a laptop trackpad.

Also, I think that mouse wheel generally complements or duplicates features available elsewhere in the UI. Not so in this case.

you may want to change the title in something like "add zoom controls for map object in composer", just a suggestion.

I am fine with that new title, but I don't see how to change it.

This is all implemented in current master - holding ctrl while zooming using the mouse wheel results in a finer zoom. Please open new requests if there's any other features missing from this report.
