Zoom out tool - why do you have to draw a box?

I can see it's useful to be able to control how far you zoom out by drawing the box.

However when you click, nothing happens. This is counter to every other zoom out tool out there and users will be surprised by this. Drawing a box for zoom out is not intuitive.

Why can't it be done so a click zooms out by a pre-set amount, yet drawing a box allows the user to control how far you zoom out? Then you have the best of both.
