It appears my original reply went direct to logos; copied here for the list...

Hello. I think it would be a good idea to add a shortcut when you are Editing
Text to make bigger the zoom with Ctrl+ Plus(+) and smaller with Ctrl+
Minus(-) like the internet browsers.

In normal view there is a zoom in and zoom out shortcut with Plus(+) and
Minus(-) Keys, but not at the editing mode.

In fact, I think it would be better to use the Ctrl+ Plus(+) and Ctrl+
Minus(-) in the normal view too, because its a more standard way.

No need to wait for a software update - you should be able to customise your keyboard shortcuts to do almost anything:
- From the menu: Tools > Customise
- Open the "Keyboard" tab
- In the list of shortcut keys in the top half, select "Ctrl++" (it's already assigned to do something else on my setup, but you can change that)
- From the functions list, select:
  - Category: View
  - Function: Zoom In
- Click "Modify", and Ctrl++ should now be assigned to zoom in rather than whatever it did before

Do likewise for Ctrl+- and Zoom Out.

You can assign keyboard shortcuts to work across all LibreOffice applications by selecting the "LibreOffice" to the right of the shortcut keys list rather than the single application name. However, you may have to remove application-specific assignments (e.g. for me, by default, Ctrl++ is assigned to "Bring Forwards" in Impress, to "Calculate" in Writer and to "Insert Cells" in Calc - those shortcuts would override any LibreOffice global shortcut unless I removed them.
