I am also seeing this problem, on OOO 3.0.1 on Windoze XP and the suite application is scalc.
Here is what is happening to me: When I use the menus as follows:
Format -> Character -> Font Position->Subscript
The first time I use this feature since installation, the default relative font size setting for subscript is 58%. I can change it here to whatever value I want and then hit OK to apply the setting. If I bring this dialog up again, I can see that it remembered the relative font size I used last, even if I close the application and open it again. That's fine and I am happy with this behaviour.
Unfortunately, this method is awkward to use frequently. I need a shortcut.
So, I tried adding a toolbar button to my formatting toolbar. Unfortunately, the toolbar button does not use the same setting remembered above - it instead uses the "installed" default value which is 58%. I cannot find a way to change the setting that the toolbar button uses. I presume this is the same problem as one would have if trying to use a hotkey.
So, my question (and, as I see it, anton_kizilov's question) is this: why doesn't the remembered setting in the manual dialog get used for all subscript operations? It seems to me that the custom setting is remembered in the dialog box field rather than in some more global value. I believe that this, if not a bona fide bug, at least is an undesirable feature.
To me, creating a special style is merely a work-around. Is there a setting that can be changed, even if it involves editing a configuration file somewhere, that changes this default relative size for good?
Thanks in advance.
