I know, and it is set to "show embedded preview",
but it does not work anymore!
(I.e., can you reproduce this?)

Yes, I know, but would it be possible to display a small
tool tip also when using the + - buttons and the mousewheel?

Yes, that's a **much** better solution.

gqview uses:
"Z" Zoom 1:1
"X" Zoom to fit

If these where added to the View menu entry (greyed out when
not in preview mode), the user could easily find them.
