I'm trying to use Ctrl w + and - to change my split width and height, but it's changing the font size instead. Any ideas about what's going wrong?

You're probably pressing Ctrl-W, Ctrl-+ and the terminal will catch Ctrl-+ and interpret that as a command to change the font size.

Just make sure you're releasing the Ctrl key before you execute the second keystroke of the command: Ctrl-W, then release Ctrl, then press + or -.
