But (I hope that) the default value for the view of a note will remain as it is?

(I ask because there are some similar programs where it is necessary to change the zoom value every time you open a note/document so that the fonts can be seen in an acceptable size.)

Do you want it to work like MS word eg:
Once set the text zoom level stayed that way for all notes and even after re-starting EPIM.

Or how Wordpad works eg:

Per-session, the zoom level is reset to 100% whenever EPIM is re-started.

@MetalDrop:

I would like to start with another wish :wink: (it's more or less the same I mentioned above, but a little bit more precisely):

I would prefer that the default zoom level will be 100% and that this level will continue to offer me the same view as it is now in EPIM (which is identical with the view I have in MS Word, also with 100%).

Consequently in this case for me it would make no difference if the zoom worked this way:

or that way:

Because anyway I would use only the 100% zoom level.

If for some reason the zoom level of 100% would not longer offer a satisfying view (e.g. too small fonts) I would clearly prefer the first method. Because it would be necessary for me to determine a zoom level of e.g. 120% and of course it would be extremely useful if this level is kept for all notes and all sessions. But as mentioned above: In the ideal case a zoom level of 100% will offer anyway the same viewing experience as now.
