When one wants to match font size with an existing document, a slider or 'click drag' on a trackpad is my preferred tool to typing (or selecting) an unknown number. I have found click drag a hit and miss affair on the current version of Pix. Pro: It worked once but now I cannot invoke it.

Is there a secret sauce to make this work?

I think what you're looking for is scrolling — you can move your mouse pointer inside the Font Size field, then scroll using your trackpad (i.e. use two fingers to swipe up or down) to adjust the size of the text.

Thanks! Click was the sickness, scroll is the cure. (Senior moment)

Is there a way to command+ + or command+ - a text field? Or is the only way to find the font size field in the type panel, click on the tiny font size field, and then drag up or down?
