Description Petr Somol 2012-06-26 11:09:01 UTC
Currently we use Alt-MouseWheelUp/Down to temporarily change font size in editor. There is however no simple way of resetting font size to the default, and doing it manually by Alt-MouseWheelUp/Down is at times frustrating as it is not recognizable easily which font size is the one we originally had.

Therefore I suggest to enable resetting font size by Alt-MouseWheelClick, if this event is catchable reliably enough.

Forgot to remark that currently (at least on Windows 7) there seems to be an unintended effect of Alt-MouseWheelClick in that it does the same as Ctrl-LeftMouseButtonClick, i.e., go to definition of type. The difference here is that the entity under cursor does not get underlined when pressing Alt before the click. This is clearly a mistaken behavior that (at least from UEX point of view) can be replaced by what is suggested in this issue.

This old bug may not be relevant anymore. If you can still reproduce it in 8.2 development builds please reopen this issue.

Thanks for your cooperation,
