I just thought I’d share a neat feature I recently discovered in Writer.
The ability to set font sizes in styles as a percentage of the font size of a base style.
For example, I often set documents in an 11 point font such as Palatino. My headings are then at 14
or 16 points. But, if I decide to switch to Times New Roman, I’ll increase my base font to 12
points. Then I have to go into my heading styles and increase them accordingly. But...
I’ve learned I can set my heading styles as a percentage of my base style. In the font size dialog
box, rather than setting it at 14 points, I’ll set it at 125%. Then, whenever I change the size of
my base font, my heading styles automatically change based on the percentage. This technique saves
a lot of effort when changing font sizes in a document.
The key is to know what style is used as the base style for the heading styles.
