Yeah, they're not too obnoxious, just would be nice if the auxiliary status bar was customized for "Image Mode", then you could tell at a glance which mode the image was in.Herbert123 wrote: The addition of the zoom field for image mode is great, I must say. I do agree the page navigation controls are a bit awkward to have in this case - although I do not mind them.
I'm liking the auxiliary status bar more and more. On my new Thinkpad, which has a high res screen, the extra space occupied by the bar doesn't make that much difference. If I was using my old notebook with a lower res, I would be more strongly objecting to the extra space....
I think it would be great if, instead of the auxiliary bar showing info tips about the tool selected in that area to the right of the zoom entry field, that area were used for icons for some tasks that now require a few mouse clicks. In other words, that area coud be divided into groups for tasks relating to

I am aware we can double-click an input field, but more often it is just quicker and more efficient to overwrite an existing value, rather than editing it.
The more I use this auxiliary bar, the more I like it. It greatly increases my efficiency for certain tasks. For example, when using the Vector Lasso tool, when the cursor is in the image area I can use the scroll areas of the Trackpad to move the image up, or down, or left and right. If I simply move the cursor above the zoom entry field, without clicking on it I can use the vertical scrolling of the Trackpad to smoothly increase or decrease the zoom. All without changing away from the Vector Lasso tool! It's an absolutely smooth and seamless way of working. Very sweet!
