Something to try: open Wrtier with a blank document ("Untitled").
Use this key combination: Command+T. This opens the Styles and
Formatting window. The list you see are the paragraphs styles. Locate
Default in that list. Then Control+Click Default and select Modify from
the context menu. Click the Font tab. This has three lists: Family, the
Typeface, and the font sizes. See if you can change what you need here.
If you open Calc and use these same key combinations, you should
be able to do the same thing.
Another key combination to use with Writer open: Command+,
(Command key and comma). This opens Preference. Look at LibreOffice
Writer -> Basic Fonts Western. There you can set the font that you want
to use for LibreOffice and the font sizes for specific categories.
If I had my choice, I would use the Styles and Formatting window
for changing fonts and their sizes. I have been doing this on my Mac for
the past 4 years with no problems with originally OpenOffice.org and
I've searched but none of the threads I can find seem to exactly cover my problem and various
possible fixes about verifying the fonts are installed correctly haven't helped.
Some fonts on my system suddenly become unavailable to LO. It happens in Calc and Writer.
A typical symptom is that a spreadsheet I have that has been running fine for years and uses say
Geneva font size 10 will suddenly be unreadable. All the cells will be blank and the font name is
blank on the font drop down list. I can usually get it fixed by quitting LO and re-opening but
sometimes it takes several tries.
In writer I can get a document and it also appears blank. again, the fonts are installed correctly
and in all cases they work just fine under MS Office with no changes.
Related is that in Calc if I click the upper left blank corner to select the entire sheet, and
change the font I cannot change the size of the font. I've had cases where within a single cell,
due to cut past issues, I end up with text in 2 or more font sizes. I want to be able to just reset
the entire sheet to my preferred font and size. I can change the font but not the size that way
even though it appears to be working it doesn't actually change the font.
And finally no matter what I do the help file is blank when I open it up. I believe it's a related
font issue but cannot seem to fix it.
