@rommmcek I just tried it with IE11 and , even wiht status bar visible, it did not work correclty at different zoom levels. :( I don't have time to dive into it now but will next week. If you get a chance to review, that would be awesome! Thank you so much for your work!!!

Not Maximized vs. Restored state were responsible but position! (When maximized pos is ~ 0,0). Made a fix, but Control is pretty dodgy, so in some circumstances may still not work. Note: Control for Zoom Level must bi visible by eye (may not be overlaid, not even by iWB2_Learner).

Edit: Get newer version below!

@rommmcek thanks for the work on this! I tried the Zoom1.1 version. At first it didn't work, then suddenly it did (for a minute) then stopped, then went back to working again. I wonder what is going on with it...

Anyway, thanks fore working on it! While the zoom setting is an annoyance, it would be great to have it working correctly!

Try this version it should perform faster and more reliable. However on may system (Win 10) work all versions pretty good.
Ultimate goal: Working without visible Control!

Awesome! Worked reliably for me. I turned off the transparency on line 320 as that bothers me but looks great! Perhaps we can have a radio button near the top to toggle transparency?

Why does the bounding rectangle now overflow? Tested this at various zoom levels on IE11.

This is a pretty old script and the author then didn't care about Zoom and DPIScale.

Edit: Use version 3.2 below.

Needs a little work. But some great improvements. Love that zooming works feature.
First the cross would not go away. (mouse pointer would not return). I went into control panel,
accessibility for mouse, to get pointer back. Then later the thing could not be deleted. Had to reboot.
This was after I had compiled it I think. Hopefully jeeswg will be involved again.

I couldn't reproduce any of issues you reported. I compiled to 32 bit (ansi & Unicode) as well as 64 bit, running on Win10 64 bit machine. All worked fine for me. Did you try original script after experiencing trouble with this version?
P.s.: As for Q-s & wishes (you already removed)
I don't feel like much of the author, so do as before. A link to the source code (of the original author) is always appropriate!
Wishes concerning features and ini file, I suppose, are too specific and I'm afraid you'll have to do the stuff by yourself.
