Lightroom: Reference View difference of scale

Quand j'affiche la vue Référence (comparaison de deux images), quand je zoom dans l'image de gauche, puis dans l'image de droit (rapport 1:1), les images ne s'affichent pas à la même taille ?

When I display the Reference view (Comparison of two images), when I zoom in the image on the left and then in the right image (1: 1 ratio), the images do not appear at the same size?
(via a left clic on the image)

The images should be independently zoomable. If you zoom one, it doesn't automatically zoom the other. You have to click on each individually to zoom in . 

If that isn't the issue, has one of the images been cropped? Check to see if the pixel-dimensions are the same for both images.

Rikk, I just experienced the same issue on my WIndows 7 system running LR CC 2015.10. In Reference View mode the Reference image can only be zoomed to Fit or 1:1 Zoom views. The Active image can be zoomed to any setting and the Lock icon appears to do nothing.

I see by the file name they are the same original. I need to rule out that they are virtual copies. 

I think I know what is going on. 

Select the image on the left. Click to Zoom in. In the Navigator panel, select 1:1.
Select the image on the right. Click to Zoom in. In the Navigator panel, select 1:1.

They should both zoom in sync now.

Not only can you zoom independently on each image, you can set the default zoom value for both the Reference and the Active photo.

Click on and then zoom in on the left image and take a screen shot.
Click on and then zoom in on the right image and take a screen shot.
Post both screenshots in a single post.

I need to see you entire screen in both including the navigator panel for both examples. It needs to be the same image on both like in your first example.

This doesn't help diagnose the problem as it is missing the information requested.. This is what I need to see: 

1. Put the same image in both the Reference and the Active Areas.
2. Click on the left image to zoom in.
3. Capture the entire screen. 
4. Click on the right image to zoom in.
5. Capture the entire screen.
6. Post both images in a single post so I can see them side-by-side.

I have y good idee...
The Réf. picture  is from the Standard overview (25600px)
The Active photo is from he 100 % review... from original raw size
The two pictures are not reel zoom

Si dans la bibliothèque j'affiche en premier l'image en 1:1 et ensuite je passe dans préférence, les 2 image seront agrandies de la même façon !

If in the library I first display the image in 1: 1 and then I pass in preference, the 2 images will be enlarged in the same way!



This is the process....

Il semble que j'aie trouver le problème, voir mon poste précédent.
Il faut que les images aient déjà été affichées un fois en 1:1 pour que le zoom de gauche soit au format 1:1, sinon sont agrandissent est celui des aperçus défini lors de l'importation !
Idem il ne sera pas possible d'agrandir l'image de gauche dans un rapport plus grand que 1:1.

It seems that I have to find the problem, see my previous post.
The images must have already been displayed once in 1: 1 so that the left zoom is in the 1: 1 format, if not they are enlarged is that of the previews defined during the import!
Same it will not be possible to enlarge the left image in a ratio greater than 1: 1.

I can help with this. The problem is that Lightroom only permits up to a 1:1 zoom in the reference photo. The target photo zooms any way yo want it to. These are the stills on my lightroom vCC 2015.9

Same here (sort of)
Finally had a use case for the reference view yesterday and found that I could only vary the active copy's zoom by dragging the slider in the bottom bar (didn't occur to me to try the navigator). The Reference image stayed the same, ignoring the zoom ratio alltogether.

This is a real problem, it greatly diminishes the value of the reference view altogether. You are absolutely correct it seems, the reference view will only allow a 1:1 zoom, period, whereas the active view allows any level of zoom. I simply can't see the detail I need to see in a large megapixel image at such a low 1:1 zoom, there is in fact no way to compare the two images at the zoom level I need to correctly compare these photos. Please add the ability to select any zoom level in the reference window, thanks!

For the comparison mode, it is true that there is no change, however use the magnifying glass mode and you can easily synchronize the two selected images zoom.
