Zoom in & out don't work in some apps / in detached windows / command "+" or "-" keyboard shortcuts are not functioning in Drive

(Carlin Gettliffe) #1

This is basic critical functionality for many of the web apps I use, especially the google suite. It is also standard in any browser, and has me still using my browser when I would otherwise be using mostly Station. Small thing, but inability to do it in Station has a huge impact.


Browser zoom level on Google Docs unresponsive
Zoom always operates on main window even when detached application is frontmost
App doesn't zoom in Asana
Zooming in & Out doesn't work in Google Drive
Some hotkeys don't work - zoom in, developer tools
The zoom in keyboard shortcut doens't work anymore
Zoom out (on keyboard shortcut) does not work on Linux

The issue I’m facing is:

After zooming in, I am not able to zoom out or reset zoom.

Reset Zoom, Zoom In, and Zoom Out do not work within Google Drive. The corresponding ⌘ shortcuts also do not work.

The text is now quite large for any Google Drive screen (Docs, Sheets, Forms…).

The zoom functionality works for other apps (Slack, Trello)

Thanks for investigating.

Here’s the detailed report

  • Trigger: Zooming in within Google Docs

CTRL + doesn’t zoom in for me.

CTRL - correctly zooms out.
CTRL 0 correctly resets zoom.

CTRL ALT i and CTRL ALT SHIFT i also don’t work (to open dev tools).

The CTRL + hotkey to zoom in works fine for me in other applications, including Firefox, Chrome, Chromium, and Discord.

OS: Windows 10 latest

Station version: latest

:writing_hand: Brief description of the issue

My problem is that on Linux I can zoom in on keyboard shortcut but I cannot zoom out using the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+"-". It does work when I use the menu, it’s only the keyboard shortcut that does not work.

Can’t reproduce the issue on ubuntu 18.04 with station 1.26.0.

Both shortcuts work correctly.

My problem is that, when I try to zoom in using the keyboard shortcut command + +, it doesn’t do anything.

    The keyboard shortcut command + +.

  • :boom: Issue
    The shortcut doesn’t do anything. To be able to zoom in I have to use the menu item.

OSX El Capitan 10.16
cmd - : zoom out correctly
cmd 0 : zoom reset correctly
cmd + : zoom in doesn’t work

cmd shift + : zoom in correctly

Not sure why, could be key binding issue

:writing_hand: Brief description of the issue

When using Google Docs and using keyboard shortcuts to change the zoom level, it will only allow me to zoom in and not out. I can “command -” to zoom out just fine but it won’t let me zoom back in with “command +”. It just doesn’t work for some reason. This is super duper annoying because all my documents are now teeny tiny and I can’t get them back to normal even with restarting my computer and quitting and restarting the app.

I keep getting messages about Chrome 66 not being supported for certain apps which I think might be part of the problem. I’m up to date on Chrome in the regular browser but for some reason Station is on a much older version.

:warning: Mandatory details

  • :gun: Trigger — “Command +” not working

  • :boom: Issue — “Command -” works but “Command +” doesn’t so my docs are tiny

:writing_hand: Brief description of the issue

When I detach an application so that it has its own window, the View > Zoom commands and their keyboard equivalents zoom the main Station window, even when my detached application window has focus.

I wish I had taken note of when this issue started happening for me but it is only as of quite recently.

MacOS Mojave 10.14
Station 1.38.1

CMD +: Does nothing anymore
CMD -: Zoom out working
CMD ): Reset zoom working

I don’t think my issue is app/extension specific as I am running 16 apps and they are all having the same issue.

I am blind - so, please fix this.
