I want to propose a - i guess - simple improvement of the useablity.
It is at least affecting Writer (including Math and Web), Calc, Impress and Draw. I am not sure if there the possibility of zooming in Base.
Shortcuts for "Zoom in", "Zoom out" and "Zoom to 100 %". I have tried to find them but have not found one so I guess there noones at the moment. If I am wrong please let me know.
Ctrl + "+" and Ctrl + "-" are not free so they can not be used.
I would suggest:
(Ctrl +) Alt + "+" for "Zoom in"
(Ctrl +) Alt + "-" for "Zoom out"
(Ctrl +) Alt + "0" (Zero) for "Zoom to 100 %"
(Ctrl +) Alt + "2" for "Zoom to 200 %"
(Ctrl +) Alt + "5" for "Zoom to 50 %"
Anyone else who is interessted in such improvement?
Thanks for new idea
Such functionality exist in InkScape. May be assign shortcuts as there for users not re-learn shortcuts?
Meanwhile, enable experimental functionality in settings, record Basic macros for this. Use Tools->Macros->Record macro.
Then assign produced macros to shortcuts. Use Tools->Customize, tab "Keyboard", category "LibreOffice macros"
On Tools> Customise >Keyboard is is possible to attach the function Zoom in and Zoom out from the View category. Unfortunately these do not work even though Zoom does, but this is not that much use as a shortcut.
these look like requests for the same

Basic macro which has needed functionality
I have written Basic Macro which allows Zoom In, Zoom Out, Zoom 100% and some another.

Confirming with 18.104.22.168alpha0+ (master) for Writer, Calc and Math.
In Impress/Draw it works – with some hickups:
* only Alt-– and Alt–+ work, Alt-0 does nothing;
* it doesn't work immediately after opening a file, you have to click the
document area first
* when editing text, it doesn't work either.

variant of macro for presentations
In Mac OS X, CMD+ and CMD- are the standard keyboard commands for zooming across all applications, and it is quite disorienting to have otherwise in LibreOffice.
As a special case for OS X, these shortcuts should be used (I believe they do not clash with anything else). (In particular, Draw currently counter-intuitively uses shift-+ and - to zoom).

Was just about to submit a duplicate bug report because i was unable to assign a shortcut for the Zoom In and Out commands in the Customize dialog, though shortcuts for other Zoom commands worked fine - .uno:ZoomPage, .uno:ZoomPageWidth, .uno:ZoomOptimal, .uno:Zoom100Percent
I planned to set Zoom In and Zoom Out as Ctrl + Alt + Plus and Ctrl + Alt + Minus on all 3 platforms. (Cmd + Alt + Plus and Cmd + Alt + Minus on mac are reserved for screen zooming on Mac)
@Maxim, @Samuel, @Bubli: Any idea why these two commands are the only ones acting strange?
Adding the commands to the toolbar show that they are disabled, which would be the reason why they dont work with the shortcuts. But why as they work fine in print preview mode.

They implemented only for print preview.

Thats sad. Any way to link shortcuts to the zoom in and zoom out buttons in the statusbar to be equivalent to mouse clicks?

Now working on the 22.214.171.124 :
There are in the Customize > Keyboards > View > Zoom In / Out options for assigning shortcuts to these features, but the assignment does not work.
Since the features IS available and it is broken, I changed the Importance of this bug.
Do not know if this ever worked in previous versions to be called a regression.

Wrong. It works. There's just misunderstanding about what this feature does. It is "zoom in/out in preview", which is unfortunately isn't explained well.

Wrong. It is not broken, but is not implemented for what is expected by many users, that's why it's enhancement.

It is clearly stated in above discussion.
