Won't stay at 1:1 mag

Tags: #mac #lightroom_4 #4.1

In the Library and Develop modules, when I click on an image to magnify it to 1:1, the image expands to 1:1 and then immediately returns back to fit/fill (depending on what the setting was before). Clicking on 1:1 magnification in the Navigator works fine as well as using the CMD + shortcut; the image expands to 1:1 and stays at 1:1 magnification. I am running LR 4.1 on Mountian Lion on a MBP. I tested in other programs and had no problems. Any thoughts out there? It is really frustrating.

    When odd things like this happen it's always worth a shot at trashing the Lr Preference file? You'll find details on location at http://forums.adobe.com/thread/358041?tstart=0

     

    Also, worth check that your mouse settings in Apple System Preferences weren't to something weird during the upgrade to Mountain Lion

    OK, I think I can trigger what you're seeing. If I click to zoom then drag the mouse even a fraction then release the image zooms back out. Once it starts doing this it's very difficult to stop. This behaviour also occurs in Lion but it isn't as easily triggered.

    Brian,

     

    On windows, at least, the spacebar also will toggle zoom mode. It's an easy keyboard shortcut to use, and it might work as a workaround until the situation gets resolved by some future update.

    Also found that keeping the left mouse key depressed for a second or so is enough to trigger behaviour. I've submitted a bug report.

    I always thought that's by design.

     

    Click-hold-release, as opposed to a normal (fast) click, zooms in and out,

    just like click-and-drag.

     

    I have no problems single-clicking reliably on my machine.
