I started using the new interface for my new game and I miss the + and - icons on the starmap to zoom in and out anymore. Are they hidden somewhere?

PS: no, the hotkeys to zoom in and out never worked on my keyboard (even with old interface) and anyway I often play from tablet.

I don't see it. I think you're supposed to use your mouse wheel or fingers (touch pad/screen).

You need the '+' and '-' of the numeric keypad.
Alternatively, you can use my Keyboard plugin, which will allow you to use normal '+' and '-', too. I have keyboards without numeric keypads, such as laptops and pdas.

And as @Talespin says, pinching works for the mobile version, even if not as precise as you would hope it to be.

@Mcnimble I've gotten so used to using the mouse for everything now. I forgot you could use the +/- keys.

Thanks @Mcnimble! I installed the keyboard plugin and now it is much better.
The keyboard of my Imac has no numeric keypad and zooming with trackpad is even less precise than pinching on mobile.
