    FYI, these are different than what the Mac app actually shows (it just shows Cmd + plus to zoom in, which I think is the standard for almost every Mac app and probably should be the shortcut here too)

    Hi Brett, thanks for the input. Are you saying that Cmd+Shift+Plus does or doesn't work. What works for you?

    Cmd+Shift+ plus works. What I’m saying is that the menu bar in the Workflowy app says that zoom in is Cmd + plus, not Cmd+Shift+ plus, so the correct shortcut is not obvious to the user. I figured that the function was just not working (and like I said, Cmd + plus is the standard zoom in in virtually every other Mac app, so this is another reason why people would try this shortcut).

    Hi Brett, 

    You are correct on all counts. This is also the current behavior in Windows. We'll be looking into this :-)

    I use a zoomed out screen for most of my work and zooming in just to try and read the Workflowy font is getting tiresome and putting me off this great resource. it just seems a bit lazy. I need the font to be bigger - not all of the browser, just Workflowy. An option to increase font size is usually achieved by the simple addition of a CSS. Perhaps this is not so simple with the way you run WF, but some of us  with visual issues would prefer a more accessible/user-friendly site. Even typing this is difficult. it's tiny. I can't see any reason why it is so small other than it's not an issue for you, but that doesn't mean it isn't an issue for others.

    Hi KJ,

    We would love to have a native feature to achieve this without zooming in the whole interface.

    Old thread but maybe still valid: on my mac neither Cmd+plus nor Cmd+shift+plus works to increase the size.

    Cmd+minus and Cmd+zero do work to decrease and to reset. 

    Thanks

    Hi there... you could try (for now) manually zooming in via the "view" tab, top left of your desktop interface.

    Hi, thanks!, and actually heading over to that menu I saw the shortcut written there (duh!) and there it says CMD+"=" (equal sign) - which works :)

    Aah, I think it's because "=" is on the same key as the "+"...

    For MacOS all of these commands simply turn the Bold icon on and off. The font is very small and difficult to deal with.
