[Solved] Screen Opening - Fonts very small

For some reason I may have changed some settings that now gives me very small fonts on the opening screen (Select type of document).

I reinstalled OO and get the same results.

Some help appreciated for my old eyes..
Thanks in advance.

/View /Zoom, try 100% to start with.

In Mac Preferences /Options (Other PCs /Tools /Options) on /OpenOffice /View screen, one can alter scaling to 130% and Icon sizes to Large. These may help increase legibility of the OO menus and toolbars, but not of document text (which should be adjusted by /View /Zoom).

BINGO, THANKS THAT WORKED. I guess 130% is something I have to get used to. Larger would be nice.

If I can find the plist for OO, it can be deleted and returned to DEFAULT as originally installed.

Any ideas on that?

What is "plist"?

To reset to standard it will probably be sufficient to reset Scaling to 100% and Icon size and style to Automatic.

Thanks everyone for your replies.

Plist ? It's a MAC thing, probably not found on windows......PROPERTIES LIST

It looks like this :
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
