Feature Request: Zoom to Previous view

It would be nice to have a button to zoom to previous view.

For instance the current view shows the whole map tile, but I want to look at some detail. Then I zoom in to this area. Afterwards I want to return to the previous view.

It would also be nice to save one or more views. By pushing "Save view" (or actually save scale/zoom) you can return to the current scale/zoom for the area you are at.

Hm, bad explanation, but I`m quite tired for the moment. Will give you some screenshots if necessary next week.

    I'll call this Zoom Toggle.

    Being able to switch between any two arbitrary zoom ratios.

    I'd use it. It's got my vote.

    If you are using the Zoom Tool, you can already restore your previous zoom level by Ctrl-Right Clicking.

    There are also menu items under the View menu to save the current view and then another option to restore it later. I eventually plan to expand this to allow multiple saved views.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
