Be able to choose the thumbnail size in the Library view

I often have to browse the library for an image/video i worked on some time ago but the Library preview thumbnails are so small it is hard to spot the item I want.
It would be really helpful to offer either a discrete choice of preview image size (small, medium, large) OR allow the user to size them using a slider to provide a continuous choice of sizes between small and very large.

There seem to be a glitch in the Zoom/Scaling feature of SnagIt 2018. The Resize Window doesn't always appear.

If you Right Click a thumbnail in the Library, you should get a Zoom slider to appear at the bottom of the Library you can use to change their size.

No slider, but an option for Thumbnail size | Small, Medium or Large

Works for me.

If the slider doesn't show

You can also click in a empty spot on the library background to bring focus to it and then use

CTRL+ PLUS    to zoom in

CTRL+MINUS   to zoom out

CTRL+0 to return to normal view/size

to increase or decrease  the thumbnails size.

No slider appears for me.  I always use the Ctrl + or - or 0 options Dubie mentioned

It is possible to change the thumbnail for an album. There is no setting for default thumbnail size. I am forced to enlarge thumbnails manually, separately for every album (I use Snagit for work and have a lot of these).
Plus the issue didn't occur in previous Snagit versions but is really annoying in Snagit2018.
