Description swisher 2004-08-09 16:50:02 UTC
When I define a custom character style and make changes to the Font tab, OOo 
seems to always associate a font size with the style. I want to specify 
a "typeface", such as Italic, independent of the font and size, so I can use 
it with paragraph styles of varying fonts and sizes. 

In contrast, the Font setting works the way I want it to: if I delete the name 
in the Font field, OOo uses the default font of the underlying paragraph 
style. But it seems to retain the Size value even if I delete the selection in 
that field. 
It seems like a bug that Font and Size don't work the same way. What I want is 
something like FrameMaker's "As-is" setting. Font effectively does this, but 
Size does not. Whether it's currently designed that way or not, I want them 
both to work the way Font does. A visual indication of the "as-is" setting 
would be nice. (The Font field always displays Times New Roman when you reopen 
the dialog.)

Also, I tried changing the Size of a custom char style from 12pt to 100%. I 
would expect that if I apply this to a paragraph where the default font is 
10pt, the text with the char style applied would be 100% of 10pt. Instead it 
changes to 12pt. When I reopen the char style dialog, it shows 12pt again.

The actual settings in a style are shown on the tab "Organizer" in part
"Contains" and not in the tab "font". To delete all font-settings use the
standard-button on the font-tab.
Your 100%-problem is duplicate to issue 4279.
Comment 3 michael.ruess 2004-08-10 06:49:57 UTC
Yes it's duplicate to 4279. The 100% value is stored as absolute value, which
makes it all a bit inconsistent.
