Bug Description

* Impact
The keys "f" and "w" no longer change the document size to fit the window or the width to match the window width

* Test case:
- open a document in evince, press the f and w keys, see if the zoom changes

* Regression potential:
check that keybindings work as they should


The keys "f" and "w" no longer change the document size to fit the window or the width to match the window width, respectively.

I confirm that 'f' and 'w' work.
Is there any plan to restore the functionality of the '/' key?

What a relief!
