Bug Description

When I try to edit any of the symbols in the power library (symbols with one pin such as GND, +5V etc), I am unable to zoom in or out using F1 and F2 or GUI zoom buttons. I use trackball mouse and have to use keyboard for zooming. A mouse with a zoom wheel still seems to work for zooming. Zooming out with the mouse wheel makes the zoom shortcut buttons work afterwards, however it will still not allow you to zoom all the way in (to the original level) with the keyboard.

I can confirm this behavior. What is really odd is that after zooming with the mouse wheel, the zoom in and out keys (F1 and F2) start working as expected. When I double click a new symbol in the symbol tree view, the behavior begins anew. Left clicking on the symbol view does not change the keyboard input focus. It appears that the symbol tree panel is stealing the keyboard focus.

Not sure if it changed or I just didn't notice it before, but the same behavior is exhibited when you create a new symbol. When a new symbol is created neither F1 and F2 nor GUI zoom buttons work. The only way for me to kick start it short of using a mouse with a wheel is to go through context menu and select a predetermined zoom level. After that everything starts working again.
