I accidentally used Ctrl+minus a few times. Now both my side panels, the top bar, and the gutters are in tiny fonts.
It also seems to have made the “readable line length” of the the reading/editing pane narrower.
Ctrl+plus sign doesn’t work, and I can’t find a general reset button. The font size reset in Appearance only affects the reading/editing pane.
Changing themes doesn’t help.
I could do it with a CSS snippet, but I only found the CSS for the left side pane
I’d be grateful for either a way to restore the defaults of all the panels, or the CSS for the right panel, the top bar, the gutters, and reading/editing pane.
As a last resort I could remove the vault and reopen it as a “new” vault (and reinstall the plugins and snippets).
Ctrl-0 to reset
You can also run the command
Reset zoom from the command palette.
Zooming in is Ctrl-=, so if you’re hitting shift to type Ctrl-+, that might explain the trouble. Or it might be a language/keyboard-layout issue. Or the hotkey may have been overridden by something else.
Thanks for your reply.
I should have mentioned I’m on Linux. I’m also on a Belgian Azerty keyboard.
The Linux version doesn’t seem to have
Reset zoom in the command palette and as I mentioned
Ctrl-+ doesn’t work. Never thought of trying
Ctrl-0, which is basically a reset command.
Somehow, by sheer luck, I managed to solve it. I tinkered around a lot, but I think what I did was
restart the vault
close it again
put the original
.obsidian file back
Should it happen again, I’m certainly going to try out

Glad you got it sorted.
You can probably fine tune it a bit for next time: When I really bork things up, (with Obsidian closed) just removing the .obsidian/appearance.json and/or workspace.json will reset the gui to a clean state.
What version and installer version?
Linux Mint 20.2 Cinnamon
By the way, I don’t seem to have a code inspector/developer mode
