LO has a nice button down right which allows to zoom in and out using

A couple of possibilities...

1. Your operating system might do something with those shortcut keys, and not pass them on to LibreOffice.

2. More likely - There are two "levels" of assigning shortcut keys in LibreOffice - those for the whole suite and those for an individual application. In the Customise > Keyboard dialog, at the upper right, there is an option to flip between assignments for "LibreOffice" (the whole suite shortcuts) and "Writer" (or whichever application you're in).

If the same shortcut key is defined for both, the one for an individual application takes priority when in that application. In Writer, Ctrl++ is assigned to "Calculate" and Ctrl+- is assigned to "Optional hyphen" (at least for me). If you assign those keys to zoom in and out at the "LibreOffice" level, they will not have that effect when in Writer; you'd need to remove the assignments from the Writer level (and likewise for Calc etc. if you want them to work there too).

I hope that helps.
