I report two problems with zoom when I select a new window on the current document, in LibreOffice 188.8.131.52 x64 Writer on Windows 10.
Steps to Reproduce:
So, if I select Window > New Window, to get a different view of the document I am working on:
(1) I cannot set a different zoom for that new window. Whatever zoom I select, applies to both windows. This is not how Microsoft Word 2016 behaves.
(2) Moreover, if the zoom is less than Fit width on the second window, the document page is aligned to the left of the screen, instead of being centered, as in the original window.
Incidentally, the option to open a new window of the current document is grayed out when working on a web document.
This zoom behavior is annoying.
Being able to set different zooms for different windows of the current document, would help me work on one section of a document (fit width) while having a different section of the document open in another window, with two pages displaying side by side (which is not a problem in Microsoft Word 2016).
I should be able to set different zoom levels for different windows of the same document.
Moreover, zooming on a single page should display the page in the center of the screen no matter which window we are at.
Finally, the issue to open a new window of the current document should be available with a web document as well.

Not reproducible for me with LO 184.108.40.206.0+ built at home under Ubuntu 16.04 x86-64. Perhaps a Win10 only problem ?
