OSX Keyboard Zoom not working

Description of the issue:
I noticed that the website zoom shortcut “cmd +” is no more working with my setup.
I never had any problems in previous versions of Brave.
“cmd -” is still working …

What I tried:

  • Created a new Profile (same issue)
  • Completly uninstalled Brave + all relevant files on disk (eg. Library/Application Support/BraveSoftware), downloaded latest version from official mirror and installed it. (same issue)
  • Checked for weird keyboard shortcuts in OS settings (nothing here)

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
Website zoom is NOT increased

Expected result:
Website zoom is increased

Reproduces how often:
Every time

Operating System and Brave Version:
OS: macOS Monterey Version 12.1 (also tested on previous macOS version, thought an upgrade maybe fixes the error)
Brave: Version 1.34.80 Chromium: 97.0.4692.71 (Official Build) (x86_64)

Additional Information:
I tested the same OS and Brave version on another computer and the zoom was working like normal. Same for tests on a Win10, latest Brave Version.
The Keyboard is working, I checked via KeyCastr
I have no zoom issues via “cmd +” in other browsers (Firefox, Safari, Chrome, Chromium)

I can confirm this issue on macOS Monterey 12.1 on M1 processor.

Brave version 1.34.80 Chromium: 97.0.4692.71 (arm64)

“cmd +” does not zoom in anymore.

I can also confirm the issue on macOS Catalina (10.15.2)
Brave version 1.34.80 Chromium: 97.0.4692.71 (Official Build)(x86_64).
“cmd +” doesn’t work anymore. In order to zoom in, I need to do it manually.
“cmd -” still works just as OP said.

Shortcut has changed from ++ to +=

Well, this shortcut is working, thanks!

Hope the simpler (for german keyboards) “cmd +” will be working again in the future

Thank you for the tip! I tried and actually I verified that
+ = is “zoom back to 100%”
while zoom + shortcut is + + = (also shift is needed)

+1 on this issue. I cannot zoom in, but I can zoom out.

yeahh… why would they change this. Is there anyway to change the shortcut? i haven’t found a way inside the settings

You could go to System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts > App Shortcuts and add in a value there. I do that all the time to fix shortcuts. Just be sure that you write the Menu Title as it is in Brave. Zoom In (capital z, capital i) and then activate the Keyboard Shortcut field and do cmd and + to store the shortcut as ⌘+
