Description askrates 2006-10-19 05:39:25 UTC
It should be possible to change the overall default font for text (not the GUI)
in Impress, using one centralized setting, for example Options ->
-> fonts -> Change default font  or somewhere similar.

This is especially a problem when working with asian languages.

I know you can work around the problem using templates, but it is neither quick,
nor is it likely to appear obvious to the average user.

This feature is now three weeks old, and nothing seems to be happening. Is there
anything I can do to speed up the process?
Comment 3 askrates 2006-12-03 05:27:08 UTC
Another month has passed without anything happening. The request seems to be
completely ignored. 

I have decided to switch to KOffice as they seem to have a more responsive
developer community. I will therefore no longer be available to provide input
regarding this issue.

it works ..
if you create a textbox (without content) and change the font size (in 'text
formatting' toolbar) you have this new size as default as long you do not
restart the office

=> the permanent setting would be a new feature
