One thing to realize is that whatever the "base" magnification is set 
at, clicking up and down on the icons to the right doubles or halves 
whatever that base is -- so just set the base to 75% (or 60 or whatever 
you want - type it in, don't use the arrows), and then you can easily 
click to 37.5%, 150%, 300%....
