Table control column headings use very big font. In case there are many columns
it would be more comfortable to use smaller font for headings to have more
columns immediately visible.
Currently (have tried 2.0.1 on WinXP+Linux and 2.0.2 Linux only) there seems to
be no way of changing the font or font size. Control/column properties allow
only to change font for data in the table itself but it does not affect the

The font style/size for table headings can be adjusted in the Paragraph style
"Table Heading". The go to the tabpage "Font".

Table heading style works for normal tables in Writer.
I am talking about Table control in form.
These two table types use absolutely different styles for headings and I have

So why did you submit this for Word Processor component?

Reassigned to MSC.
Comment 5 wahur 2006-03-09 15:05:58 UTC
Because Writer does forms. Sorry if my choice was incompetent.
Comment 6 marc.neumann 2006-03-09 15:17:39 UTC

@wahur: normally the control/form testing and development is done by the
database team(Component: database access). Anyway I reassign this enhancement to
the User Experience team for evaluating.

Comment 7 wahur 2006-03-28 12:55:30 UTC is discussing the same
issue, although under different angle. Seems to be related to some zoom settings.
