Possible to set the default zoom level?

I assume the feature would be called 'zoom':

CTRL+MouseWheel Up

CTRL+MouseWheel Doom

Is there a way to set the defualt zoom level?  I work a lot on a 1080p laptop monitor and the default zoom level is really low for me.  So, I often find myself having to zoom in all the way every time I open a new document.

Also, it would be great if you could zoom in a little more.   Some times I want things even bigger.

Hello Reno,

You can easily configure default font size used in editor using File | Settings | Editor | Colors & Fonts | Font | Size.

Regards,
Oleg

I feel stupid.    I tried it under 2.0 a while back and had some problem so I gave up and forgot about it.   Works great now.   Thanks (doh!)

Will this reload the existing windows in the editor and display with the new font? In effect, I want a *global* zoom level. I switch between my desktop at home, work and small (13") mac display.

Ideally, I would have a number of presets I could configure and switch between (autodetect (by monitor set) and switch with prompt would be the best).

Craig, sorry for misleading. As far as I understood, you'd like to switch between different settings' sets, in this case please vote for the corresponding request:
