How to turn off automatic resizing of the view to fit selected obj

When I select objects that partially fall outsize the current window (becasue 
I have zoomed in on a particular detail), PPT automatically resizes my view.

This makes drawing/editingn of small objects in a larger drawing tedious and 
time consuming. In past versions of PPT this did not happen.

How can I turn-off this automatic resizing of the zoom factorview ?

PPT 2007, right? Apply SP2 for Office 2007. That will fix it.
