Description norbert2 2003-09-27 21:57:42 UTC
In the settings its possible to change the default-fonts for the writer. But the
Spreadsheet-application always uses "Albany"-font as default, and I can't change
this. Please add an option to the settings to allow changing the default

Hi Norbert,

You can change the default font by defining a default template, saving
it into a template folder and defining it as default template.

Hi Bettina,

But in the writer the default font can be defined in the options. Why 
not also doing so in the spreadsheet application?
Comment 3 bettina.haberer 2003-12-03 19:10:30 UTC
Hello Norbert2, there is also the function 'Apply replacement table'
as a workaround for changing the font for each new spreadsheed to be
created (accessible via Tools / Options / StarOffice / Fonts). But
that will not change all the font settings in the dialogs, it is just
the visualization of the font at typing. 
But in principle it should be possible to easy change the default font
for each application. Summary is extended for all apps concerned.

Component changed to framework (concerns all apps).

Comment 6 norbert2 2004-04-28 21:22:43 UTC
I agree. There should be a possibility for ALL apps to set their default font,
not only the writer.
Comment 7 norbert2 2004-04-28 21:56:44 UTC
I mean separate default-font-options for each OOo-application, like Bettina
suggests. (Not one global option.)

It seems issue #2730 is duplicate of this issue or vice verse.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
