Bug Description

I'm asking for just the ability to redefine a shortcut key to Increase/Decrease Font Size in the viewer.

Calibre as short-cut redefinitions for almost everything, but, weirdly, it hasn't for this. :)
Increasing and decreasing font size on the viewer is often used by me, because I often change between 3 different screens, in order to read.

It's a lot better using "Ctrl + +" then "Ctrl + =" to increase font for two reasons:

1. I only need two keys to press "Ctrl + +", but I need *3* keys to press Ctrl + =", because I have a portuguese layout keyboard. In this layout the equal sign is above the zero, so it's not direct; you also have to press the Shift key.

2. "Ctrl + +" is the standard among most viewers (PDF, browsers, notepad++, etc). In fact, the only two applications that I know of using this, are Adobe Digital Editions and Calibre.

This is not worth the effort for me personally. If some one else wants to implement it, I will be happy to supply any needed guidance. If so, re-open the ticket and we can discuss it.
