Pic Mgr +/- zoom does not work; why?

Discussion in 'Microsoft Office' started by Joe User, Feb 2, 2010.

    I have MS Office Picture Manager SP3 (11.8161.8172). The zoom + and -
    buttons do not work when I left-click them with the mouse. But I can drag
    the zoom slider by holding down the left mouse button.

    Any idea what the problem might be with the zoom + and - buttons? More
    importantly, any idea how to fix it?

    I am sure the zoom + and - buttons worked in the past. But Pic Mgr is not
    something that I use frequently. The buttons might have worked before I
    installed SP3 and not afterwards. But I can assert that with impunity.

    They aren't buttons; it's just the slider.

    Usability issue.

    Oh, okay. I coulda sworn I had used the + and - buttons before. My bad.
    As I said, I don't use Pic Mgr very often.

    Thanks for the explanation.

    I click those suckers every time I use it. You'd think they'd work like zoom
    controls in most other apps...

    FWIW the "+" and "-" keys work (both sets) and also clicking on the
    "line" the slider is on, will accomplish what the "buttons" indicate.
