I have just been working on a file in AD 1.5.5 on Mac OS X Sierra 10.12.5, and discovered that there's a very handy keyboard shortcut for incrementally increasing and decreasing numerical values, for example in font size: Option + up or down arrow.

 

--> Unfortunately, even though I am using this shortcut in a dialogue related to text, the shortcut works on the text itself simultaneously, by changing the leading override. Oops! 

 

--> Also discovered that while the text tool is active, I cannot use keyboard commands to zoom in and out of the document - Command = and Command - are temporarily disabled.

I am not sure where you are using Option & the up or down cursor keys to change numeric values, but by default, option + up or down cursor keys change paragraph leading (not leading override), which you can check by opening the Text > Paragraph Leading menu item & noting the keyboard shortcuts next to those two items (should be ⌥↓ & ⌥↑ for increase & decrease leading, respectively).
