Birdview toggle switch

Idea) Toggle button to widen and narrow panadaptor window showing range of frequency.

Two years has passed since I started using Flex6500 and now the panadaptor is an indispensable tool like fishfinder for fisherman. 
When I dig into the very narrow band width to find a rate one, I sometimes want to see what is happening on this band other segment from macroscopic view (birdview), like 14000 - 14350Khz, with a push of button and coming back to the current position with another push - back and forth in an action.
Left corner of the panadaptor window is left open for such toggle switch?

    I'm  basically doing that with macro's in DDutil.  I'm running a MFJ Mag Loop and it really helps, when changing bands to get out to that wide view and then turn the loop. You can see where it's tuning to.

    I have three settings:   

    Narrow:  DD6PBW0:.075;  
    Normal:  DD6PBW0:.275;  
    Wide:     DD6PBW0:8.2000;  

    These set the width, to 75, 275 and really wide at 8200!  The last one is great to watch the mag loop cap turn from 20 meters to 40 meters.

    However, having it built into the panadaptor, would be great too!

    I do the same with a Genovation 24 Keypad and DDUTIL Macros

    Push a Key - Zoom In   Push a Key - Center - Push a Key Zoom Out

    Much faster than moving a mouse to a spot on a Screen

    Hi Ken,
    Here is an idea I posted a while back to show both the macro and micro slice views at the same time.   It's a different approach but may be of interest.
