Bridge: Review Mode: More zoom functionality, control of image view-size, & a few other things

In Adobe Bridge, there are a few simple features that if added, would make my life a lot easier. In Review Mode, if I could zoom in on pictures easily, and could control the level of zoom much like when using the zoom tool in Photoshop, as opposed to the tiny review mode magnify box which has very limited functionality and is way too zoomed in for most of my needs. I also wish that I could make the images larger to fit the whole screen. I use Bridge in Review Mode to go through all the pictures I've recently taken and it always bugs me that the images are small and not full-screen--or that I don't even have the option. When I'm trying to compare two photos, its a constant guessing game because I need to see the images larger to be able to tell which ones are really better. The zoom box provided does have some benefit here because it can help to show how sharp and in focus certain areas are, but it is difficult to examine anything larger effectively. I got a large wide-gamut monitor for this very purpose so it's a waste to not be able to use every inch of it when reviewing photos. Lastly, I have two issues with review mode that are specific to the situation of when you are selecting 4 or less photos to review. It automatically splits the screen area among the photos selected. It would be nice to have the option to make it show one image at a time here also, and full screen for that matter too. And, when you have multiple images side by side, it would be nice if when you open the magnify/zoom box on one image, it automatically pops up on adjacent images in the same location. That way, you can easily compare small details across captures of the same shot to quickly see which is sharper.

I very much agree! Would like to be able to use review mode with FULL SCREEN capabilities or with an automatic zoom feature (ie. set all reviews to 100%).
