Inability to zoom waveform vertically

To zoom waveform vertically, 2.2.2 made it harder: a right click, then a left click is needed. Previously this was left click. Please fix this.

You called half of the old behavior the "Advanced" one. Which is strange. The other half (right-click zooming out) cannot be restored, because right click is always that context menu that reminds me of a Command Prompt.

Also, I noticed a design flaw: the first zoom in may exceed 1 or go below -1, and in this case a further zoom in will reset to the classic -1 to 1 scale.
