Panadapter Magnifier to aid Tuning

Accurate tuning with a mouse is sometimes difficult when a wide spectrum is displayed.
A panadapter magnifier that tracks a slice might help. The area immediately surrounding the slice would be expanded to show the signal more clearly as in the attached image.
The magnified area is indicated by the colored window surrounding the magnified signal.
Its sort of a slice in a magnifier slice...

The magnifier could be turned on/off by right clicking on the slice, or by hovering over the slice like the 5000's tracking filters work.

Yet another way to implement this tuning aid might be to create a second tracking slice in a second panadapter. The display could then be adjusted or fine tuned at will.

We're planning another couple of levels of zoom in the panadapter -- will this achieve the desired result?
