You can set a favorite font, including font size, and you have the option to "always format text this way" - but unfortunately the size setting is disregarded :-(

Otherwise, quite a fun tool, but to be really usable, it should be able to affect every text chunk in the whole OS. Of course there are no APIs for this, but wouldn't it be cool anyway? :-)

Yep, I find that the "Make Text Bigger" and "... Smaller" menu items do nothing, nor do the associated key commands. I did learn something helpful:

1. If you specify, in Tofu Preferences, a Fixed Width font, you will be able to use these keyboard shortcuts to enlarge and shrink all text, selected or not.

2. Some other fonts [in my case, Geneva], can cause the text to vanish completely, I think [still not sure I can recreate that one -- you try, too, and let us know].
