Linux MINT cinnamon 19.

Reproducible: always

Steps To Reproduce:

  1. mint menu - Preferences - Accessibility - Visual
    turn on "Large Text"
  2. Start Nightly

Actual Results:
Everything looks large, including image, tab width.

Expected Results:
Text only should be large.

I think that's expected given how we've always been using these settings, and it also matches what other browsers do... Is this a problem?

I can confirm that this works like the other browsers/applications now. It does require a restart of the browser to take effect but the result is as I would expect as a user.

Yep, Chromium does.
However, Desktop Icon, Icon in Mint Menu, Icon/control buttons of Document Viewer as well as toggle button size of the Accessibility dialog etc are not change its size. (Of course I restart OS after change settings)

No problem for me,
But I don't know which is the expected result of the MINT.

BTW, on Windows10, Start - Settings - Ease of Access - Display, Make text bigger.
Just change text size only.

Yeah, I'd be ok changing this to affect only text.

That's probably a poorer user experience over-all as websites in my experience tend to be more broken with text-only zoom than with regular zoom... But may be more conceptually correct.

(Anyhow not gonna work on it myself right now, so it's ok to keep this closed for now, just saying that I'd be happy to mentor someone into writing one should they want to, I think)
