I don't (I'm on a laptop), which is why having keyboard shortcuts
would be really nice.  Most DTP programs I've seen (PageMaker,
etc.), along with other graphics programs (Inkscape, Gimp, etc.)
will let you zoom in and out, usually at smaller increments, too
(10% maybe?).  Would it be too hard to clone Inkscape's zoom

Anyway, I'm really really really impressed with Scribus and am
excited to see it grow.  I used it last night to put together a
picture scrapbook of about 90 megs' worth of pictures and there was
no slowdown at all.  Very, very nice. :)
