As it is now....When Zoom to Selected Features is used for a single, point feature, the zoom scale is calculated as 1/20 the overall spatial extent of the layer. In cases where the feature class has hundreds of thousands of features (e.g. Address Points), this zoom function loses all of its value. I would like to see an option for a default, or maximum zoom extent setting in cases where I want to zoom to a single, selected, point feature.
I agree with the comments above. I have a ~12 sq. mile area city and my selected address point still gets lost. I can't imagine functioning with a state-wide dataset!
I see a benefit for adding 2 (possibly 3) options to the selection pane in Options:
Points, and lines/polygons (or split those out separately) - give option for a default scale or 'zoom to extent of selection' for each.
1/20th of the overall extent seems like lazy programming from someone who has never used the software (or done by direction of someone in the same situation). I can't think of any scenario in my daily work where that kind of zoom to selection is effective.
