Description simonbr 2003-04-10 20:58:26 UTC
It's annoying that OOo 1.1 on Windows uses a different font for menus than the 
rest of Windows, which makes the program look odd, and not well integrated in 
the OS. 
A properly programmed Windows application should use the font that is 
configured for the whole of the Windows UI (Display Properties dialog). 

I am aware of issue 3745 (changing the menu font is possible) but in the 
Windows version this should really not be necessary. Even programs such as 
Eudora Light 3.0, which was written in 1997, appropriately uses the menu font 
as specified in Windows' Display Properties dialog. 

I found that if the menu font size and selection is changed in that dialog, the 
menu font size in OOo does change appropriately, so at least some of those UI 
settings are applied in the program. This should also be the case with the menu 
font selection.
