Windows 7 64-Bit / Windows XP, LR 3.4.1:

According to the manual, Shift + = / Shift + - should Increase / decrease Grid thumbnail size on secondary window.

I can not make this happen. Can anybody confirm?

Beat, I can't make it work either on 3.4.1....though it does work properly on 2.7.

Thanks, Jim.

Works for me on 2.7, and in 3.3, it does not work either.

Update: the help documentation is wrong. This functionality did exist, but was removed because these were also the keyboard shortcuts used to move the Basic sliders in the Develop module. We're pretty much out of keyboard shortcuts, and decided that nudging Develop sliders was something you'd want to do more often than adjusting grid thumbnail size on the secondary monitor.

Still a problem of course, since the documentation needs to be updated to reflect reality.

Thanks, Ben.
