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

Preferences > Advanced > Formatting Options > Font Options >

Window > Magnification

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

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.
