[LNT] Does LNT's mouse wheel zooming work well anywhere?

This is only a minor annoyance, but mouse wheel zooming on LNT graphs is pretty broken on at least OSX. It does not work correctly on Chrome, Safari or Firefox. On Safari and Chrome the zoom is way to sensitive, on Firefox, the page scrolls while mouse wheel zooming. This appears to be a limitation of the flot graphing package we use.

Does LNT’s mouse wheel zooming work better for people Linux and Windows?

I think mouse wheel zoom should be turned off, in favor of traditional double click to zoom, and zoom in/out buttons.

Yes, please!

That's odd. Zooming works great on my machine using Chrome and Firefox on both
Windows and Linux.

However IE8 fails to correctly render the web page. (Not surprised at all...)

Works as in "it zooms", but I personally hate it zooming on mouse
wheel, since it changes the behaviour of the browser depending where
the cursor is, which for me is just bad design. I'd rather it worked
with buttons than mouse wheel.

Not surprising at all... :slight_smile:

In r208444 I disabled mouse wheel zooming. If people really miss it, we can enable for some platforms.

You also need to update the control instructions next to the graph.

Good catch! r208612. Thanks
