I have pushed changeset
which adds zoom in and zoom out in the editor with updating the margin width where the linenumbers are shown.
The shortcuts are Ctrl+<keypad+>, Ctrl+<keypad-> and Ctrl+<keypad/>. Using Ctrl++ does not work because this is Ctrl+Shift+= on us-keyboards and not recognized as Ctrl++.

Could someone please test the attached patch (gui-release)?

It is identical to the changeset
which was backed out cause it was breaking the following shortcuts in the editor: Ctrl-C, Ctrl-X, Ctrl-V and Ctrl-Z (all the shortcuts that are defined by QScintilla and redefined by the octave editor).

Today, I wanted to fix the patch and now all shortcuts are working in addition the new ones for zooming the text.

Reopened since the patch broke a few short cuts

A "View" menu with the zoom entries is already implemented by the patch.

thanks for keeping ctrl-0 for showing the command window;
ctrl-alt-0 should be okay; otherwise, I'd propose a menu item instead of a dedicated keyboard shortcut.

Attached a patch that overrides the QsciScintilla-internal shortcuts with Ctrl-+, Ctrl-- (normal keys) and Ctrl-Alt-0 for zoom in, zoom out and normal size respectively. Ctrl-0, which is in general used for the normal size, is already in use for showing the console. Should we change this?

The advantage of not using the internal shortcuts is that the margin width is adapted when text size is changed.

On a different keyboard, I can indeed zoom in with Ctrl-<Keypad +> and zoom out with Ctrl-<Keypad ->.

Without the keypad, I can only zoom out with Ctrl--. Trying to zoom in with Ctrl-= or Ctrl-+ (Ctrl-Shift-=) only inserts = and + characters into the editor text pane for me.

Ctrl-<Keypad +> and Ctrl-+ (plus within normal keys) work both for me. On your notebook, don't you have an area in the right half of the keyboard (small symbols in the lower right of the keys) that mimics a keypad when Num-Lock is activated?

Ctrl-<Keypad +>? I'm on a laptop without a keypad keyboard at the moment. Ctrl-+ (== Ctrl-Shift-= on my US keyboard layout) does not zoom in for me.

Ctrl-+ is working for me as zoom in (ubuntu unity) but not the shortcut for restoring the size (Ctrl-keypad/).

Confirmed, but I think you mean zoom in (Ctrl-+) should be set, or both should be unset. Ctrl-- zooms out (makes the text smaller) but there is no way to zoom in (make text larger) or restore the default zoom level.

or zoom-out should also be set
the former can be currently accessed via ctrl-minus (or ctrl-dash)
the latter would be accessible via ctrl-plus
