I need fast shortcut to change the terminal font size. I use gnome-terminal.
I tried with Ctrl + + and Ctrl + - but the size is not changed.
Is there another shortcut? Can I add a shortcut like this?
Ctrl++ and Ctrl+- are working fine for me. Maybe you have different shortcuts configured.
To change the keyboard shortcuts, go to Edit -> Keyboard Shortcuts... in the gnome-terminal menu, and look for Zoom In and Zoom Out:
Try Shift Ctrl +for increasing
and Ctrl - for decreasing font size.
Note: the Shift key is needed on some systems.
Trick that worked for me was to use Ctrl + Shift + = or Ctrl + - but NOT on numeric keyboard.
Remember that terminal is VERY literal! The + key Ubuntu terminal wants is on top row and requires Shift otherwise it's =.
