Tweak default zoom?

  • That sounds just what I need. Where will I find the 'Preferences' file to edit?

  • Or, as I see in the source code, zoom_level = log(zoom_factor, 1.2), where the logarithm base 1.2 is a constant.

  • My goodness! Thank you. 😎

    Could a mathematician here tell me the figure for 180% and 185% please?

  • Don't have a calculator handy, but it is log(x)/log(1.2), in your case x would be 1.8 or 1.85 ...

  • log(x)/log(1.2)

    Hey that's great. Thank you. I just substituted for x and put it into Google and it gave me the figure! 🙂 I never knew Google could do that.

    Now to see if it will do the business in Prefs.

  • That works a treat! Thanks all for your help.
