Onscreen tool for zoom in block diagram and a tool for making another VI/Type Def/global control(front panel/block diagram) to be floating while we are working in another VI in full screen

#1. So, I would like to see a zoom in/out tool on the LabVIEW BD panel. Its very hard while working large multiscreen codes and sometimes it's not possible for a wide monitor with high resolution.


#2. Another tool I want to recommend is to have a docking tool on VI/Type Def/Global Control FP so as to see the control and contents while in the background we can work on another VI.
