There's a command for changing the size of text in the Format menu: Format > Font > Bigger. Although there isn't a shortcut for it, you can set up your own using the steps in this guide.

As for smoothing, text is smoothed automatically — could you possibly share what results you're getting and what you'd prefer/expect?
