Always Fresh terminal scaling

Post#1 by nanZor » 23 Jun 2019, 09:21

Just a quick tip about the terminal keybindings in Always Fresh mode:

If you need to scale your terminal fonts up or down, the following keybindings work - at least in the XFCE4 version:

CTRL SHIFT +

CTRL - (note no shift)

Quite a bit faster than going into the terminal preferences, and clicking away at the font size and window size prefs. Super handy when I bork something up, and I have to go Always Fresh a few times to fix things. Just a couple of CTRL key combos and wham - I'm in fixing things giving my eyes a break in the process. :)

Let's fix that XFCE4 zoom-in keybinding!

I wanted a more user friendly experience, so I changed the keybindings to be operationally similar - dropping the need for the SHIFT key when zooming in. So instead of using the + key, in reality I changed it to the = key.

CTRL = (zoom in)
CTRL - (zoom out)

Just edit the xfce4 terminal keybindings file to your liking. Edit

~/.config/xfce4/terminal/accels.scm

I changed the following keybinding using the "equal" key rather than "plus" (which implies using shift - don't want that)

Code: Select all

(gtk_accel_path "<Actions>/terminal-window/zoom-in" "<Primary>equal")
Note that to make this active, one needs to REMOVE THE SEMICOLON at the beginning of the line.

Sweeet!
