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.
