Chris Muller-3
Hi Tobias,

All I did was restore the original shortcut keys that had been in
Squeak since its earliest days.  I suppose I'm curious why you didn't
pose this question to the one who killed underline and strikeout
formatting but, for whatever reason, you seem to only "object" to MY
improvements.  But whatever, instead of questioning my friendliness,
how about talking about what's good for Squeak and the IDE?

Hot keys are for functions that are used *frequently*.  In a web
browser, zoom-in and out makes sense when every web page uses
different font sizes.  That's not the case for Squeak.  Setting
themes, colors, preferences and fonts is all part of initial
_configuration_, something typically done only once in the lifespan of
an image.  Most wares mature enough to worry about font sizes have
since developed their own configuration script which sets everything.
Nevertheless, it's now on the World menu, which can be activated by
mouse OR keyboard.

This provides desktop keys for the font size but do you really think
this is useful?   I can't think of any case where I'd want to be
frequently flipping back and forth between global font sizes once
they're set up.  We should spare hot keys for future USEFUL things, so
I vote we do NOT move it to trunk.

Best,
  Chris

Well I frequently change between laptop screen, 24" monitor and projectors of different resolutions.
Changing font sizes is much more frequent for me than that text change. I see how that can be useful sometimes but I so not see how this is so universally useful. IMHO, something like Emacs M-x in the vein of "apply this string method to the selection" would be more versatile and at the same time cater for thing that are useful but relatively infrequent.

This is a typical use case these days.

Question:
Could this use case be made more prominent? I mean visible to the user
that this function to switch between different resolutions is handled
well.

E.g. include in Theme or preferences, or Squeak menu? (top left)
