Description Michal Jaegermann 2007-08-12 18:05:27 UTC
Description of problem:

In xpdf-3.01 and earlier there was a popup list of predefined
zooms but it was possible also to edit your own values (a window
left of "down arrow" was editable).  Somehow this ability was
lost with 3.02 packages.  Makes my wife mildly unhappy. :-)
Yes, I know about '-z' but this is not really the same and
a gap between 200% and 400% is substantial.

Any idea why this happened?  Nothing obvious at the first look
and the same sources recompiled on CentOS installation still allow
these edits.  Some widget?  There is no "down arrow" on that list
anymore but a rectangular "push button".  Still 3.01 was using mostly
the same libraries even if CentOS has openmotif instead of lesstif.
I tried changing some configuration options but without visible

Comment 1 Michal Jaegermann 2007-08-12 20:10:01 UTC
Oh, I see. In XPDFViewer.h

#if (XmVERSION >= 2 && !defined(LESSTIF_VERSION))
#  define USE_COMBO_BOX 1
#  undef USE_COMBO_BOX

and COMBO_BOX is not in use replaced with a button. So this looks
like lesstif "improvements".  Bummer!

In such case dropping in that gap between 200% and 400% at least
250% and 300% would be nice.  Like that:

Some other values on that list, like 25% and 12.5% seem to be
awfully small.
