Description 3clips3 2003-12-25 11:36:41 UTC
In Tools -> Options -> Formula -> Settings should be an option to set the
default font (size and name) used for formulas.
Comment 1 michael.ruess 2004-01-16 16:34:24 UTC
At the moment this is done in "Format.Fonts" respective "Format.Font Size" by
using the "Default" button.
To have this in Tools.Options could be a good addition.

And it should be possible to change alle formulas in a document afterwards (like
it is possible with paragraph styles and so on in writer).
Comment 4 meywer 2009-12-08 20:21:37 UTC
Btw - 
inside writer opening a formula (OO-math), then going to format, fonts, brings a
very unvomfotable dialog, because one cannot change values as one expects
(directly at the sveral fields in the left), but always has to click modify in
the right, choose, what to modify, ... - very uncomfortable. And works only for
one formula (or for all but only in the future, if set as default...))

It would be great if the user could select entire document or its part and run
some command to change formulas' style in the selection, including:
- font size
- percentages of sizes for indexed, limits, functions, operators, text, etc.
- fonts (separate settings for variables / functions / numbers / text / serif /
sans-serif / fixed)
- color

Also, it would be great to extend this feature to an option of that the formulas
could automatically change 
- their default font for numbers and variables and 
- their default size  
- their color
  to match the style of their surrounding text every time it changes.

I was writing everything in my mathematical report in "Times New Roman" font...
Suddenly I discovered that university requirement is "Arial" font. I changed the
"default" style font easily, but I had several hundreds of formulas (equations)
in my document which were in "Times New Roman".  I see that I can't correct ALL
formulas in my document to another font yet. 

1) I think this is a DEFECT, not an ENCHANCEMENT.

2) I think we should set higher priority to this issue... For example,
"implement before next major release", or what?

Add me to cc.
Comment 9 meywer 2010-02-07 13:40:24 UTC
Have you tried dmaths
This could include a solution. I'm not sure.
Be aware of overwriting your shortcuts by dmaths-installation.
Another solution could be a script on the xml-content of your odt-file.
Comment 10 q0k 2010-02-08 02:08:31 UTC
I tried Dmaths, it isn't disciplined

I tried CmathOO
It's buggy
1) police et taille des formules | set fonts for formulas in this document
2) "OK"
3) "Redimensionement en cours ... "  | changing the formulas' fonts ...
4) BASIC runtime error. Object variable not set. Line 166, Col 103
(I already wrote to the developer with the problematic file, no reaction.)

I think Open Office Org should have this done as easily as for any other text.
