Currently +/- keys on N8x0 navigate through multiple articles (a word may be
present in multiple dictionaries or have multiple translations in the same
dictionary). This is the way it was in SDict Viewer (which doesn't have text
increase/decrease) and hasn't changed since. While it seems natural that +/-
should change the font size, an argument can be made that user typically sets
the preferred font size once and rarely adjusts it afterwards, while switching
between multiple translations is a frequent operation (currently there are not
many dictionaries in aard format, but it's easy to compile them from XDXF and
Wiktionary, so multi-dictionary use case is an important one). On the other
hand, it's easy enough to switch between articles by tapping article tab
label, so maybe +/- indeed should be used to change text size. Opinions,
suggestions?

Good point, I wasn't aware of that feature. Need to resize font was my initial
reaction to aardict and because the expected +/- keys didn't work it felt like
a bug.

I have only one dictionary so +/- keys don't do anything
