Zoom : CTRL + (+) instead of CTRL + (=)

Recommended Posts

= and + share the same key (ignoring numeric keypad which may not be present on all devices) on common keyboard layouts, with = being the default and + only working if shift is also pressed.

Ctrl + = seems logical to me because it functions without the shift modifier.

Ctrl + + could imply that the shift must also be pressed.

 


Highly recommended open source screen capture software (useful for bug reports).

I commented about something similar awhile back, but my post was about some different shortcuts.

For example, on Windows, File > Close is shown as Ctrl + W but typing a W (rather than a w) requires use of the Shift key. And Ctrl + Shift + W does not work. What I find interesting is that the key on all my keyboards is labeled W even though pressing it without shift gives w instead. Or, for another, the Brush Tool shortcut is B, which is how the key is labeled, even though pressing that key would generate a b.

So they seem to be labeling the shortcuts based on what the key says, not necessarily on what it generates.

It's a little different in the case of the +/= since they allow both to work, though.
