Does GIMP support a zoom feature that follows the mouse?

If you move your mouse, that zoom moves around as well. It's good for precision
and not having to zoom in while making selections. On top of that, you can
control the cursor with the arrow keys for further precision.

Is this feature supported? If not officially, by the community?

Not that i'm aware of.

Note that operating systems often include a magnify mode.

For example, in Gnome 3 used on many Linux systems, go to the
accessibility menu on the top panel and enable zoom; then, superl-alt-+
and super-alt-- will zoom in and out, and yes, it follows the mouse.
You can change the keys (search for zoom in Settings and scroll down to
the key bindings for Zoom in and out; Super is the Windows key on many
keyboards).

So you can use this while you are in the middle of making a selection,
for example.

It is not quite the same as the feature you are suggesting, though, as
GIMP won't add extra detail to the magnified pixels.

Oh, I see. I forgot about this. Windows has it, too.
Now it's a matter of customizing it if possible.
Thank you.
