Font size of file explorer, window title and preference pane too small

The “system font” for title, file explorer and preferences pane is so small, I can barely read it. The editor font can be increased in preferences/appearance, but that setting does NOT influence the window title, file explorer or pref-pane.

Steps to reproduce

I accidently decreased the font size with cmd-scroll… and since then, cannot increase the system font anymore.

Expected result

When I set the font size in preferences, at least the file explorer and pref-pane will show increased font size.

Actual result

see screenshot, system font too small.

By using the menu/view/actual-size command, the system font increases. That’s a command NOT available in the usual obsidian way

cmd-0 works fine, cmd-- (cmd-minus) too. cmd-+ has no visible effect, though…

I think cmd-+ doesn’t work in some keyboard layouts.
