Summary0004299: Some events can't be zoomed to even though they have a definite location
DescriptionThere are several types of announcements that you can't zoom to, even though they do involve a definite location. Examples:
Someone is throwing a tantrum.
The dwarves were unable to complete a building.
An animal has grown to become a stray cat/dog/whatever.
A dwarf has become a something.
Jobs removed from unpowered magma forge/furnace.

It is horribly annoying that I can't just zoom to a tantrum from here, and must instead look the dwarf up in the units list. And it's insanely horribly annoying that I can't zoom to the building that the dwarves were unable to complete. Instead I must look through the jobs list and try to figure out which building is the one. Quite often it's a wall, which on the jobs list is indistinguishable from the several walls that I suspended manually for whatever reason.

All events with a definite location should be possible to zoom to!

Whilst I agree that we should be able to zoom to a lot of things that we can't, I think this is more of a "feature" or incomplete feature (for the suggestion forum) than a bug.

EDIT: Adding CLOSE THIS to get footsy's attention. :P

In my opinion it IS a bug "even though they do involve a definite location"

And interesting discovery:
The badger boar has become enraged! <- I can zoom
Badger boar is no longer enraged. <- I can NOT zoom (by the way, why "The" is omitted?)

So it is a bug.

Locations of dead bodies can't be zoomed to. This frustrates me so bad.

It includes messages that
*building destroyer destroyed building
*<dwarf> has created a masterpiece!
*An animal has grown to become <animal>!
*The dwarves suspended construction of <building>.
