Shortcut to change font size in editor (for MacOSX)


From time to time I accidentally change the font size in the editor (make it bigger) and I don't know how.  There must be some shortcut for this but I didn't discover it yet. I tried to look into the docs but the one mentioned there doesn't work (Ctrl+MouseWheel) and even reset doesn't wortk (Ctrl+Shift+A).

I'm on iMAC. Any suggestions ?


Please check the shortcuts assigned to 'Increase font size', 'Decrease font size' and 'Reset font  size' actions in Preferences/Keymap/Editor Actions


That works great! Is it possible to also change the font size of the GUI with a shortcut (i.e. Settings > Appearance & Behavior > Appearance > Use Custom Font > Size)? Or even better, lock the GUI and editor fonts to match.

I'm frequently switching between a 4K monitor and laptop only so that would save me a bunch of time fiddling with the settings.


No, unfortunately there isn't such an action/hotkey.

  1. In the Settings/Preferences dialog Ctrl+Alt+S, select Editor | General.

  2. Make sure that the setting Change font size (Zoom) with Ctrl+MouseWheel is enabled.

Then Ctrl+MouseWheel would change front
