on smaller computers like netbooks (mine is an EEEPC 1005HGO), the help text (called with F1 key) in Libreoffice is just too small to read. I found still no way, to get the font increased.
So it would be nice, to add a "+" and "-" button, to resize the fonts in the help menu browser.
If I missed some settings, please point me to it. I also found no way, to show the help in an external browser if there is any.
Thanks for reading this.
Funny, because when I updated the help content CSS I used fonts that have bigger x-height than what was used before. Segoe UI, for instance, displays at 10 points.
You can increase the zoom the same way as in Writer: Hold Ctrl down and use mouse wheel or touchpad scrolling section.
And we don’t aim to support a netbook’s resolution (1024 × 600) anyway.

A bigger x-height indeed contributes to legibility.

I have a collection of some 30 articles, studies regarding readability and legibility on the web and on CRT. I am also a skilled CSS test engineer and I am convinced that, even though 11pt is better than 10pt, a minimum should be 12pt. I mentionned some of them in bug 107193 comment 7

This information should be written somewhere in the documentation help files. I never found this.
