Trying to give switching from pycharm to eclipse another go again using the latest version. This is as close as I've gotten to working thru all the quirky nuances and it being a viable ide for work.

I need the following support at a minimum:

pydev (working)
viplugin (working)
git (somewhat working, still working thru issues)
Font resizing and/or some form of editor zooming (not working)

I'd also like support for bash scripts w/o it opening an external editor. (I can live w/o this)

I've searched and tried everything I can find about font resizing and zoom capabilities and nothing works.

Anyone have any suggestions?

FYI: I'm on Ubuntu Mate. (14, 15 or 16 I'll use any of them if I can get this tool into a robust configuration)

I've had to force eclipse to use GTK 2.x (on Ubuntu 16). I've tried using oracle java 7 and oracle java 8.

Is there *any* combination of eclipse versions and plugins that can achieve this?

Quick font zooming is available in the Neon milestones. See
As noted in one of the comments, Lars has ported the zooming into his Saneclipse plugins so you could install them into an Eclipse Mars release if you don't want to be an early adopter for Neon. See
