Thanks, Neil, it is as you say (dependent on main FFT span), so it is indeed possible to make the necessary corrections under duress :-).
But there are plenty of gotchas, apart from the "cumbersomeness" and nuisance factors I already mentioned. For example: even with very accurate positioning of a marker, zooming out enough makes it "fall off the edge" of the peak so wrecking the marker statistics. Whereas the S-Meter itself doesn't exhibit that kind of artificial sensitivity.
I'll definitely take your advice and raise a support ticket if that's the right way to go (I hadn't realised group topics were ineffective for this).
Grateful for all your help!
