Photoshop: JDI: make double-clicking the zoom or hand tool a spring-loaded event.

Double-clicking the zoom or hand tool on the toolbar allows one to quickly change the zoom ratio to fit or pixel size.

The handy shift+double-click shortcut applies the change on all open documents.

I often wish that it would not change the active tool, and simply change the zoom ratio. Could it be made "spring loaded" Do you agree or not?

Hah!

I noticed that one just needs to spring load the zoom tool (hold Z) and then double-click the hand or zoom tool icon in the toolbar to do exactly what I want. Not sure if it should be tagged as implemented, or if it was as designed 5 years ago...

Still, it is not very user discoverable, and I think the process can be simplified, without the need to hold down Z.
