When I use the mouse scroll wheel to zoom in Inkscape, it is all too easy to rocket from useless big to useless small. Is there a way to control the sensitivity of the mouse scroll wheel zoom?

Instead of using the mouse wheel to zoom you can also use the number keys 1 to 5 for zoom presets. I found this more convenient than scrolling.
1 zoom 1:1
2 zoom 1:2
3 zoom to selection
4 zoom to drawing
5 zoom to page
There are also keys for free zooming.
+ zoom in
- zoom out
