Make the View/Zoom menu more robust and flexible.

Compare the zoom menu from Gimp app and Affinity Photo Beta app below.

Notice that the Gimp app allows for 16+ possibilities for zooming in and out including the ability to set custom zoom factors.

I would like to see these features in the Affinity suite of applications.

A form of zoom to selection already exists: press Alt and draw a marquee using the Zoom tool, release Alt.

Or for an "infinitely" variable zoom, drag the Zoom tool right to zoom in, left to zoom out.

Or use the Navigator panel, where you can type any % zoom you want, or you can drag the slider.

You can also set multiple custom zoom points using the Navigator panel in Advanced mode, where you can select a point in your document, and a zoom level, and name it. When you click on that zoom point you then navigate to that point at that zoom level.
