    In Snow Leopard, you could pinch the trackpad in Finder to change the icon/thumbnail size. It was useful in a folder of photos to try and find a particular photo, you could just enlarge the thumbnails.

    It doesn't seem to work in Lion however, you need to go into the options and manually change the icon size for each folder??

    Any one way to get the old method working again?

    My workaround is having the statusbar shown (Command+/), which provides you with a slider on the bottom-right corner.

    Is there any way to turn on the status bar and slider permanently, rather than having to remember another Command key? I don't see anything in Finder preferences.

    Seems like Lion has more little pitfalls than previous OS X updates.

    Well Finder should automatically remember the status bar, if you close the window with it on. Next time you open a Finder window it should be there. I've never had to reapply every time, it's just always there.

    You're right. I normally turn the machine off at night, and when I started it up this morning, the slider is still there in Finder after turning it on yesterday.

    Thanks.
