Quickly set/change default text zoom in Outlook

For example you change the zoom slider to 120% when composing a new message in Outlook, and the specified text zoom will be applied to all composing/replying/forwarding message windows in future. But reading message windows don’t adopt this text zoom scheme. Even if you have changed the text zoom to specific percentage when reading an email, this text zoom percentage won’t be kept for all the other emails. Kutools for Outlook has an option which can change the text zoom of reading, composing, replying and forwarding email windows to specific percentage.

    Hello, can you add functionality so that when changing messages in the email window using the Next Item and Previous Item options (keyboard shortcuts: CTRL+< and CTRL+> ) that the zoom level is set on the email that is switched to. The Zoom function is currently only working when opening each email individually, closing the window, and then opening the next email in its own window. Thank you!
