Zoom in shortcut should be =/+, not shift +

Bug Description

* Impact
the zoom in keyboard shortcut is no longer just the =/+ key but now requires the shift key to be held down

* Test case:
- open a document in evince, press =/+, see if the view zooms

* Regression potential:
check that keybindings work as they should


In Ubuntu 14.04, the Evince/Document viewer (version 3.10.3) the zoom in keyboard shortcut is no longer just the =/+ key but now requires the shift key to be held down.

I assume this is a regression, since every previous version of Evince simply mapped zoom in to =/+, no shift required. The Zoom out shortcut is unchanged (the -/_ key).

Works for me now (version 3.10.3-0ubuntu10.1): simply hitting the +/= key without holding shift zooms in.

Thank you for fixing this.
