Font changing at random

Postby writerman » Sun Mar 17, 2019 7:25 pm

I write in Calibri 12 point, which changes, apparently at random, to a smaller point size on random lines on several pages. I can sometimes correct this by highlighting the faulty text and selecting the font size again. However, I sometimes have to select a smaller font first then select the 12 point. Sometimes this appears with a clear score though it. It's annoying! Any suggestions anyone?

Make sure you have the font that you want to write in installed on your computer.
If you pick a font (style and.or size) that is in the font list, but not actually installed on your computer, then Writer will do a silent substitution of a font that it considers similar.
If that is happening, then the code that picks the substitution may not always pick the same one.
