Yes ! Exactly
On this, Geary should be using your desktop's preferences for the font size when composing. Which leads me to a question or two (which I'll post in the bug above as well): 1. Is Geary actually using your preferred font for documents? (Under GNOME it's the "Documents" font, not sure what it would be under XFCE though) 2. Why would you want to use a font size different than the one configured for your desktop?

Hi Mike,

For 1. I tried and Geary uses the xfce set default font for everything *except* the email body (both of received emails and sended ones). So even if I increase the default font, emails are still in a tiny font. I can fix that with Ctrl+Scroll for received emails but not when writing one.

About 2. : I don't have good eyes so I need a quite big font *but* I don't want to have my all desktop all the time with a very large font... What I do is increasing the text when I plan to write a big email or document. I work well on emacs (C-x +). Another important point is that I use sometimes a laptop stand which is great (it avoids neck pain) but puts the screen far away for my eyes (I use external keyboard and mouse). So I would like to be able to increase the font when using this laptop stand.

I think it would be a good thing if Geary can adapt the font inside email body to what I decide in xfce settings *but* I would still needed a way to temporary increase/decrease the font just for personal convenience. Ctrl+ and Ctrl- should works everywhere. When I am tired I increase a lot what I read.
