    I switched WinMerge to German in my English Windows version (XP) and shortcuts worked fine.

    Tim, can you check this too? I assume you have a German Windows..

    Mhh, I have no problem with the Zoom shortcuts if I use the font "Lucida Console". I tested it on a German Windows XP Home.

    Just to be sure - you are talking about font selected in WinMerge, not Windows GUI font?

    Lucida is True Type font, so it is not about bitmap fonts unable to zoom.

    I have a German keyboard attached (system language is English) and the shortcut keys do not work.

    Hi, I am using a fresh Win7/winmerge install with german keyboard and language settings. I can confirm that the shortcuts still don't work.

    As alternative I would appreciate being able to set the initial zoom factor during startup or in the options.

    I also noticed issues zooming on Unicode. The issue appears to be that the Zoom shortcut Ctrl + and Ctrl - are only looking for the NUMPAD key codes, rather than the -/ +/= keys.
