Lightroom Classic: Zoom in zooms out and other zooming issues

Issue #1. Use the Zoom in and Zoom out commands in the menu. After a few tries they would work multiple times (zoom in after zoom in). But they would do an opposite operation.

Issue #2. If you change the zoom level with the mouse wheel (or the corresponding trackpad gesture), then there would be no way to restore the zooming level to the original size. This is very inconvenient!

Issue #3. There is no zooming level corresponding to the actual size of the image. You just can't check the image in the actual size! Adobe, are you serious about this?

#1 unable to reproduce
#2 is as-designed behavior - Steps of Zoom and 1:1 are a toggle.  Reset 1:1 by clicking Navigator panel header.
#3  Not sure what 'actual size of the image is' in your description.  Can you provide a better description.

Sorry for the mistype: "The commands work with 3 or 4 zoom levels." I couldn't edit my message again to fix the mistype there.

The key step to generate the most of those issues is to set the 4th zoom level to 1:2 (not 2:1!).

There are more issues with the zoom levels. For example, I was able to reproduce this:

Click Zoom In: 1 changes to 2.
Click Zoom In: 2 changes to 4.
Click Zoom In: 4 changes to 3.

So, the zoom levels go between these states: 1 (FIT) - zoom in - 2 (FILL) - zoom out!!! - 4 (1:2) - zoom in - 4 (1:1). Again: 1-2-4-3!!! All you need is to click Zoom In.

That's just crazy.

At the same time a click changes: 1-4, 1-3, 2-4, 2-3 depending on the moment in the first zooming chain when you click.

And you said that you tried 150 and didn't see any issues... Really?

I am sorry Dmitry, but I used your example and still do not see the issue:

1 - FIT
2 - FILL
3 - 1:1
4 - 1:2

Tried it another 10 times on a landscape image and a portrait image. In each case the zoom in and out via the View>Zoom In/Out command zooms properly.

I think the issue you are reporting is that the 1,2,4,3 is wrong but actually when you are setting #4 to 1:2 it becomes the physical size between 2 and 3. If you watch the Navigator panel as you go through the zooms it is being placed properly and it is apparent what is happening.  And if you revert #4 to 2:1 the order becomes 1,2,3,4. 

I see as-designed behavior here and no evidence of a bug. Zoom has worked this way for 14 years if I remember correctly and we've had very few reports of issues with this method. 

Zoom functions on an image-size based progression - it does not work off the order of the buttons.
