The shortcut using Command +/- to change text size is not working across all of my apps. Others like "Command I" and "Command U" seem to be working fine. I have restored defaults under System Preferences>Keyboard>Shortcuts. Any ideas?

Not sure what you mean? This is what I'm talking about, same shortcut, different apps.

Sorry, I was looking under the "View" menu. If I select text in any of the aforementioned apps and press Command +/- the text grows or shrinks accordingly.

Just to add, you are several versions behind. The current version of Big Sur is 11.2.3.

Since it works fine in Big Sur 11.2.3, my first suggestion would be to update. Other than that, you could test while in Safe Mode or with a new user account.

I will, I'll have to do it later. I have something running atm and can't reboot. The shortcuts worked in this version previously, I use them all the time. They just suddenly stopped working.

I see. You didn't mention they worked before. Did you install anything just before they stopped?
