The shortcut for Enlarge Font (control+shift++) doesn't work - no idea why.

If you go into the shortcuts menu, and manually choose control (plus) shift (plus) plus, *then* it works, but shows up as Ctrl++.

Reproducible: Always

I would like to confirm, that the new default shortcuts for increasing and decreasing font size make no sense on an US notebook keyboard.
As described above pressing Ctrl+Shift++ does not work, since you need to press Shift+= to get a plus symbol which then is Ctrl++ (and not Ctrl+Shift++).

Also I would love to see that these shortcuts will be implemented into the kpart of konsole, so that the changed shortcuts get updated in programs like yakauke.

The problem with the current configuration is, that decreasing size works (but can be hit my mistake, since it is the same shortcut in emacs for undoing) but then there is no way do increase the fontsize again, if you have no numpad with + key, which is the case on (almost) all notebooks.

I agree, CTRL+SHIFT++ really only works if you have a number pad on your keyboard.
