Keyboard shortcut to change font size in Eclipse?

Eclipse Neon (4.6)

Zoom In




Zoom Out


This feature is described here:

In text editors, you can now use Zoom In (Ctrl++ or Ctrl+=) and Zoom Out (Ctrl+-) commands to increase and decrease the font size.
Like a change in the General > Appearance > Colors and Fonts preference page, the commands persistently change the font size in all editors of the same type. If the editor type’s font is configured to use a default font, then that default font will be zoomed.

So, the font size change is not limited to the current file and the new value of the font size is available here Window > Preferences > General > Appearance > Colors and Fonts.
