changing the font size is currently available via Ctr+mousewheel
or directly in the menu
Maybe it could be somehow enhanced for pure keyboard shortcuts like Ctrl +/-

It's well hidden, perhaps it should be in the Settings as "font size", so it would be possible to find it easily.
Zoom works too, but it's not in the main menu and the keyboard shortcuts are missing too.
Zoom indicator is missing completely, or at least I can't see it anywhere, it should be in the status bar as 100%, 110%, etc.
EDIT: Perhaps "font size", or/and "zoom" could be added to "PSPad features" list too, it's a basic feature, but quite important, I changed font size when I started using PSPad and now I tried to find, if it's possible to change text size or zoom and I couldn't find in anywhere, had to use this forum to find it - and I didn't even know, that it's possible to use Ctrl+wheel to zoom until now - and I'm using PSPad perhaps about 10 years.

Ctrl+mouse wheel is known function used in browsers, office suits...
Change font size is placed in the menu format, cause same placement was in office apllications and editors too

OK, but I still think, zoom should be also in menu and the current zoom state should be in the status bar.

I think there is no zoom. It's only an increase or decrease of the font-size. So you can not show a percentage value but the font-size.
And yes, I also would like to see the font-size in the status bar. Maybe also the font-family.

Font size maybe, but why font family? There is no possibility to set different font for different windows.

I sometimes try different font-families. Just as a reminder, would be nice, but not necessary
Also I just didn't realize that the font size only applies to one tab
