Setting font size to 14 doesn't persist and has unexpected behaviour on `window:reset-font-size` #19521

I got the following behaviour starting with Atom 1.38.x.
When I set the font size as 14 (which is the default), the setting doesn't persist beyond restart and when executing window:reset-font-size it sets font size to whatever was previously set by first executed command of either window:increase-font-size or window:decrease-font-size.

Steps to Reproduce

If I set the font size as 14 and restart Atom, font size appears as empty (renders placeholder: Default: 14), I then get the following two different behaviour depending on the steps:

  • Increase font-size with window:increase-font-size
  • Reset font-size with window:reset-font-size
  • Result: Font size is now set to 15

Another result:

  • Decrease font-size with window:decrease-font-size
  • Reset font-size with window:reset-font-size
  • Result: Font size is now set to 13

Additional if it Atom already knows a previous font size (like the 13 or 15), window:reset-font-size will keep using this font size, even if the user enters another font size manually, fe. 16.

Expected behavior: Should be able to manually enter font size 14 and window:reset-font-size should reset to whatever was the last manually entered font size

Actual behavior: Manually setting font size 14 doesn't persist and window:reset-font-size sets font size to whatever was previously known or last used by/in Atom
