Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 101326
ZOOM should affect ALL TABS
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:56:25 EDT
Description of problem:
When using the zoom (font size) feature of gnome-terminal, all tabs in the same
window should be zoomed at once....just like resizing the window resizes all
tabbed terminal sessions at once...
It is quite jarring to have the terminal resize when switching between tabs in
the same window because different tabs want different font sizes.
On second thought, I'd like to sometimes have ZOOM affect only the current tab.
Ideally there would be two versions of zoom...one for this tab and one for all
at any rate, the size of the gnome-terminal window should not change when
switching tabs, but it would be OK and sometimes desirable for two tabs with
different font sizes (lots of small text or a little big text)...
Having two zoom options seems like a bit much.
I can definitely see arguments going either way, but the current behavior
certainly seems reasonable enough.
I'm going to close this WONTFIX but if you'd still like to see this changed,
feel free to file upstream at http://bugzilla.gnome.org
