Re: [Evolution] CTRL+ bug closed rudely.

FWIW, I agree with the behavior that Zot is requesting.  It makes no
sense at all to make the font size increase global.  At most, it could
be global for all messages currently being displayed, but this too
doesn't make any sense.

Galeon only increases the size of the current browser tab when doing

 I believe it was correct before.  If people need to change the default
look and feel for all window panes, then it should be a setting under
options (perhaps also a menu setting under view. like view -> Text size
-> set for all windows.  and also -> make default setting
(permanently).  It seems like people who want all windows enlarged,
really want the permanent setting (they have small fonts, or bad eyes).

As I point out above, this breaks the patterns of other X apps, Mozilla
being the number 1, but also multiple instances of things like
gnome-term, gimp, and others, keep per window sizes.  I mean you would
not expect enlarging one image in the gimp to enlarge all shown images
would you?  And to say, "but they are both text" is bogus, they are
usually plain text, and "something" from Outlook.
