When you hit ‘G’ or ‘H’ (zoom in, out) it centers the cursor to the absolute center of the screen. This is wrong because it doesn’t take into account the inspector zone on the left.
What it -should- do is orient the display so that the center is offset by the width of the left inspector.
That would put the ‘center’ where you eye expects it.
BONUS COMPLAINT FOR FIFTEEN YEARS:
When the screen redraws during playback (as when ‘Follow’ is active), the cursor should be oriented at the CENTER of the screen, not at the left which is beyond stupid. In fact, if this were fixed I probably wouldn’t need the above.
