midora Posted June 22, 2014 Share Posted June 22, 2014 (edited) I was always missing a IndirectUi control for zooming. Typically if you like to allow the user a 2d zoom you provide two sliders and maybe a checkbox which triggers a rule to keep the sliders in sync. But compared to the angle or the pan control there was a symbol missing which allows the user to change the values more intuitive. So I thought I will give it a try. Here is an example how it may look like compared to angle control. What do you think? Is the control intuitive or is there an other idea out there to handle the 2d zoom case? (It's much easier to find a good symbol for the 1d case...) In the screenshot above the sliders are kept in sync, which means for the control that you could move the nub in the center just on the diagonal from bottom/left (small) to top/right (large). The sliders are exponential. Means 2^0 is in the center. Here an older variant: For me this one looks more that you are just able to double the size.
