Vertical waveform zoom?

Is there any way to zoom the waveform display vertically in the sample editor or arrangement view? Sometimes quieter parts of a wave aren't visible in the wave display.

    Seriously?  No way to vertical zoom in ableton?  This is a basic necessity in any DAW: being able to see a waveform better by zooming vertically without increasing a sample's volume.  Ableton seems to be lacking this...  Please, correct me if I'm wrong.

    Im used to work with vertical zoom in pro tools and really need this also in ableton! Im doing a lot of field recordings and its a pain to cut these without seeing anything in the waveform :( Please fix this, Ableton!!!

    In arrangement view you just need to drag the lane size up or down and then the clip will increase or decrease in height, correspondingly expanding the waveform height.

    In the clip view at the bottom of the screen I think it's similarly a case of dragging that part of the window up or down and the height will change.

    Or I guess alternatively you could increase the clip gain while you're editing...
