I don't think this has been suggested before, but a little zoom window that can be moved around would be a real nice addition to the next software upgrade.

Doubt it's possible with our limited budget/resources these days, but I'll inquire!

Wow, so how does one replicate this on their own system? By the way, it's on the "wish list" for Phase 6 and potentially possible on our end.

If your using linux then the two magnifiers I use are KMag and xzoom which is what is displayed. If using windows then you can use magnify which is in the system32 subdirectory.

Here is another screenshot using KMag in the center
