Magnification inconsistency

On the Mac, with version 7.0.0 There are three different ways to change the magnification at which a current notebook is displayed on screen: (a) Preferences > Advanced > Formatting Options > Font Options > Magnification (b) Window > Magnification (c) The view magnification indicator at the bottom right of the window. With a notebook containing some text, try using (a) to change the magnification to 300% and watch the indicator (c) - it does not get updated. Then, with 300% magnification already in effect from (a), use method (b) to change the magnification to 300% again (it still should say 100%). This has no visible effect. Finally, after doing all the above, use (c) to change to 300% magnification. Now you have a 900% magnified display even though the indicator (c) reads 300%. I don't have 7.0.1 yet so I don't know if this bug is still there - if yes, I'll file a report. Jens
