Lightroom navigator panel: Increase hit box for zoom controls

The zoom controls in Lightroom’s navigator panel are really difficult to hit. See where the mouse is positioned in this screenshot:

The mouse is very close to the “1:1” zoom level selector, yet, when clicking at that position, the zoom level is not changed but instead the navigator panel collapses (see how the “Navigator” label on the left is highlighted).

This is a very frustrating experience, since I personally never really want to collapse the navigator, and I only move my mouse there to change the zoom level (that’s why I’m on the right side of the panel).

Please increase the hit box for the zoom controls in the navigator, so it’s easier to hit them and change the zoom level. Also, get rid of inbetween-space that will collapse the navigator instead of changing the zoom level. Ideally, you shouldn’t be able to collapse the panel at all from the right side but only change the zoom level; the hit boxes for the levels should touch themselves to avoid this behavior.

Thank you.
