If you are using Tomboy 1.0 or later, you can use ctrl++ or ctrl+- to
increase or decrease text size. ctrl+0 returns to the default size.

Alt+t to open the text menu, escape (or select an item) to close it,
tab once to get back to the editor.
I thought we had a bug filed about this lame behavior, but I can't
find it right now. Feel free to file a new one.
Hope this helps,
