Jacques Dujardin

and the big one sat on 16th it stays 12.

I hear you, Jacques. I have to highlight all the space I need and then set
it to the font size I want while it's still blue. So stupid.

Hi Jacques,

You have at least 2 alternative options:

    How do I change the default font?
    You can set the default font and its size in Tools > Options >
    OpenOffice.org Writer > Basic Fonts (Western).
    ALTERNATIVE METHOD: Choose Format > Styles and Formatting, right
    click on Default and choose Modify > Font.

The above is a copy and paste from the FAQs at:
https://wiki.openoffice.org/wiki/Documentation/FAQ/Writer/FormattingText/How_do_I_change_the_default_font%3F

Note: The alternative method is only valid for the current document. A
better method is to create your own "Default Template"
https://forum.openoffice.org/en/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1161

The same or similar answer can also be found in the in-built help, the
OpenOffice forums  and with a simple web search many other places.

Regards
Dave

Re: Font size

Hi Jodi,

You are very welcome. When you find something in the software that you
find frustrating, or seems "stupid", first take a look in the in-built
"Help" facility, while not intended to be an "all encompassing" detailed
reference, it can often give you a reasonable clue about the information
you need to track down in other resources, such as the forum:
https://forum.openoffice.org the FAQ's, HowTos & Docs:
https://wiki.openoffice.org/wiki/Documentation.

This software has been around, in one form or another, for almost 17
years and there have been numerous articles and tutorials written about
it. So once you have a clue to what you should be looking for (eg. the
in-built "Help" facility), it should not be difficult to do a web search
and pinpoint the information you need.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
Dave
