Editor Increase/Decrease Font Size Should be wired to CTRL+Mouse Wheel (up/down) by Default

It took me longer than it should've to figure out how to temporarily increase / decrease the font size of the text editor.  

Sensible defaults would be:

  • CTRL+Mousewheel Up: increase font size
  • CTRL+Mousewheel Down : decrease font size

 

That's the way it defaults in IDEA (as well as numerous other apps, like Chrome/Firefox).

So the purpose of this ticket is to suggest:  This setting should be turned on by default.

It's an intuitive gesture that is the default for many applications. It should also be the default for DataGrip.

I don't think this setting is default in IntelliJ IDEA.
