Unacceptable. It affects the size of _everything_, not just font size.
I collided with with a fatal side-effect. I tried a too large factor.
Now the "accept" button is now off screen and *NOT* accessible.
Don't see any option short of reinstall to resolve.
I consider LibreOffice *DOA*

How about filing a bug report? That won't solve your problem
*right now*, but... you know, giving back and that.


I'm not sure it's a "bug" in the "bug report" sense. It's more likely a logical outgrowth of some basic design decisions made to meet the perceived needs of a target audience. I'm not a part of that audience. I found too many other things that grated during my (admittedly surface) survey of LibreOffice.

If I decide to investigate further, I suspect Felix's post may give an adequate workaround. Right now I'm attempting to learn debootstrap. I hope to be able to contribute a rewrite of "D.3. Installing Debian GNU/Linux from a Unix/Linux System" from _Debian GNU/Linux Installation Guide_ aimed at a less experienced audience. Even retired, there are just so many hours in a day ;/
