Hi all,Late reply, been finishing off something - but I can get back to thinking about superscripts again! Yes Virgil, I think we've got a similar problem... I can change the size of individual cases, but there is no way I have found that I can just set the new size once, and then all others follow suit from then on. I have tried to fill in all of my details in the way that was mentioned earlier, but to no avail. Therefore I will submit it as a bug. I've never done that before - I'm guessing it's pretty intuitive... am I right?
I really wish I had the skills to fix this myself, after all, that's one of the benefits of having access to the source code isn't it! One day maybe...

I have not read this entire thread, so forgive me if I'm repeating others or writing something that doesn't quite fit.I've found that I can change the size of superscripts by changing their attribute in the Superscript character style.The problem I've found (which may be the same as y'all) is that selecting the superscript toolbar button doesn't apply my newly changed superscript size. The program says that it's applying the superscript character style, but it's not applying my customized size attribute.So, instead of applying superscripts through the toolbar button, I apply them by selecting the character style. I get what I want, but it's not a very intuitive way of getting there.Virgil -----Original Message----- From: Kracked_P_P---webmaster Sent: Monday, June 03, 2013 4:39 AM To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Re: [libreoffice-users] Default Superscript and Subscript size Tom, and the others. . . . I do not find in the "Tools" menu options any place that defines the subscript and superscript sizes. I know where to change the size from the 58% to 50% or other size, but not where that default size is stored and can be save for the next time. I believe [but never done this] you could set the size and save it "someway" as the default document. If that works, it may allow you to set the character size of the "scripts" to whatever works for your needs. Or you could save a page, with the size change[s], as a template and us it that way. But I never changed the default document or made template that actually show up when I save as template and then try to open a new document from the templates. The paths shown in "Tools > Options > LibreOffice > Paths" shows the "save as template" file locations in the "hidden" dot config folder system, which LO does not show the proper config template folder in the "Open > Template" options. Maybe you can create another path for your saved templates, but right now, it does not work. I think it is a bug in the 4.0.x system though. So has someone made the bug report? Any good and easy work around? Saving a document as a .ott file and placing it into a personal or business template folder withing you standard "My Documents" type of folder for Windows, or in Linux a "/home/"user"/Documents/LibreOffice/business/templates/" type of folder. It would be nice to be able to make the change to the superscript size and then it will reflect that change when you do another manual or "automatic" script set of characters. like - 1^st , or 2^nd , H_2 O [the "st" and the "nd" should shown as superscripted and the "2" in H2O should be subscripted] On 06/02/2013 07:11 PM, Tom Davies wrote:Hi :)Ahhh, that's where it is. It's never made any kind of sense to me either.Tools - Options - LibreOffice - User Datais the right place, i think. Still, it doesn't need all field to be filled in apparently and even just any 1 field with about 1 word is plenty.Thanks Girvin! Regards from Tom :)________________________________ From: Girvin R.

But that may just be my paranoia showing. Girvin Tom Davies wrote:Hi :)No worries about the duplicates to me. Pressing Delete 3 times instead of 2 is pretty easy for me.There is some weird bug that means a certain setting keeps getting forgotten when there is nothing inFile - Properties - Descriptionsbut you don't need to fill it in substantially. Even just a word per section is more than enough. I don't think that is likely to be the problem because someone else would have picked it up by now. So, i think starting a bug-report would be a good plan.Regards from Tom :)________________________________ From: Tim Vivian-Griffiths <email@example.com> To: Tom Davies <firstname.lastname@example.org>Cc: Steve Edmonds <email@example.com>; LibreOffice <firstname.lastname@example.org>Sent: Sunday, 2 June 2013, 14:20Subject: Re: [libreoffice-users] Default Superscript and Subscript sizeHi 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, Tim PS, sorry for duplicating this Tom...

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 thatstraight away just post anyway. Later on you can add comments so youcan 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. https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/BugReport If this list does solve the problem you can always close the reportand 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, suchas user-name and stuff 'filled in'? There was something that only worked if you had at least 1 or 2 characters, even empty spaces inthere. 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 portableversion worked out in case i'm ever here again!

The only way that I can get what I want is by selecting every instance individuallywhich is just impractical.Steve, I can do exactly the same as well but once the changes areselected there is no difference at all when I start typing. Iselect 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 Ihave 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 takesplace. That's why I thought it could be a bug.
