Thanks for your comments.
"now i have a popup, which has been blocked / opened in a tab, resized my whole
window to nearly nothing, just to tell me i should klick to zoom."
I guess you have that nifty FF extension that opens pop-ups in a tab - yes we
will think hard about whether this is really worth doing as opposed to <a>a
"...i imedialtely grab my mouse and put my left hand on the ctrl-key and do the
scrollwheel thing. ok! i should read. click and zoom it says..."
- interesting point about the buttons. I think we may need to differentiate
between them. The mousewheel idea is interesting too, I had a look at a number
of zoom applications before doing this one and this seemed to be the most
consistent technique, (although I do use the mousewheel a lot too).
"...users normally don't care about technique..."
- Yep, trying to drill this into my boss's and our customers heads after learning
a few things this year, trouble is the client thinks they are the user still.
So this testing is part of the process for me to develop and also for us to get
some feedback from various users.
"..don't take my advices too serious, but you should think about some here and
then. for your next job maybe..."
Not taking anything too seriously except trying to improve - you learn to be
thick skinned and listen to get anywhere with computers...
Thanks for taking the time out to test, I will tell them to get employ some more
