Hi Tom

Sorry for the later reply on this. Thank you for this information, really useful as I have never done it before. I'll also fill in that information to see if it helps at all.

Thanks again,


PS, sorry for duplicating this Tom... I pressed Reply instead of Reply-to-all the first time!

Hi :)
Given the answers in the thread at AOO i suspect it is a bug.

Here is a guide to help post a bug-report. Don't take it all too seriously. They ask for a lot but if it's not easy to give all that straight away just post anyway. Later on you can add comments so you can get all the required information together in the report in a few posts at your own pace. It might be that they are able to help without even having all the info straight away anyway.

If this list does solve the problem you can always close the report and let people know how and that might help those people over at AOO too.

Just out of curiosity do you have any of the general information, such as username and stuff 'filled in'? There was something that only worked if you had at least 1 or 2 characters, even empty spaces in there. Aaargh, i'm at a Windows machine that doesn't have LibreOffice or even OpenOffice, yet. I might have to make sure i get the portable version worked out in case i'm ever here again!
Apols and regards from
Tom :)

    Subscript size

    Hi all,

    Actually none of these things are happening Tom. The only way that
    I can get what I want is by selecting every instance individually
    which is just impractical.

    Steve, I can do exactly the same as well but once the changes are
    selected there is no difference at all when I start typing. I
    select my desired size and click Apply, then when I reopen the
    document... the changes are still there. However, when I press
    Ctrl-Shift-P to get superscript (or Ctrl-Shift-B for subscript)
    the size is back to 58%. As I said before, I can change it after I
    have typed it by selecting it and then going to Format ->
    Character and changing it to 70%. I just cannot find a way so that
    whenever I toggle super/sub-script on... I get the desired size.
    I've followed the directions in the writer guide, and this seems
    to me to be intuitively what should be done... but no effect takes
    place. That's why I thought it could be a bug.

    let me know if I can give any more information. I have tried to
    save the changes as a template and then save it and make it
    default, but it didn't change anything unfortunately. I think the
    main problem is that the Automatic box gets checked again as soon
    as I close the window. It's not a problem that arises when
    starting a new document but as soon as I try to make the changes.
