I was hoping to have some hotkey / mouse wheel control of the timeline zoom / size, such as Alt + Mousewheel. From what I can tell there is no native functionality for this apart from the slider above the timeline.
Please tell me there is another way to resize the timeline!

Urgh, I know.. and feel your pain!! They need to program the bracket keys to increase and decrease the timeline, make the spacebar stop and play the timeline, and perhaps even add J, K, L to rewind, stop, and play!
But unless the new update has that, which I don't believe it is (no mention on list of updates) I don't think its possible.
For now we can recommend it!
Well, I tossed my request into the 'Wishform Well'. Hopefully someone reads those! XD
Really, I see no reason why the timeline shouldn't have the same controls as Premiere or After Effects.
I totally agree! Its all the same company, they have the resources to the programmers, there is no reason to not keep it all consistent as possible. Lately Adobe is spending time on trying to simplify the apps, offer in-app teaching resources, etc. How easy it would be if I can teach someone Premiere, and the amazing shortcut keys "J,K,L" to navigate the timeline, and "+" and "-" to zoom in and out, the "\" key to fit everything in the timeline.. and let them know that it also works in After Effects, Animate, and Character Animator! It would make it much easier to jump into another timeline-based app!
Character Animator does follow suit (Aside from J,K,L). After Effects needs to add J,K,L, and Animate should add all of the above! Just like Command T should be Transform across all apps! KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid)!
Hopefully they listen to your request! I will mention it as well!
Thanks! Stay safe! Cheers!
I feel your pain too, right now.
What makes it a little easier: Position the cursor over the timeline zoom control, for example over the drag button.
Alt + mousewheel zooms the timeline in and out.
Is there a link to your wish list post?
Then I will support it.
