Face similar problem !
Created A0 file, wrote one letter and could not make it bigger than 999.9
Build ID: 1:5.1.4-0ubuntu1
CPU Threads: 1; OS Version: Linux 4.8; UI Render: default;
Locale: en-US (en_US.UTF-8)
Similar problem with also LO 188.8.131.52
UX: this is an extreme edge case. Isn't Jacques's suggestion the right way to go in this case? WONTFIX?
There has to be an upper limit. Microsoft allows a font size up to 1638pt which is the size of the maximum page height at 22in.
When I create a document with "Hello World" at this size in Word and save it as ODT (<style:text-properties fo:font-size="1638pt") it opens and renders in LibO with the right font height. But the last page is missing ("ld"); and of course you must not touch the font size.
So for sake of round-trip consistency I recommend to increase the maximum at _all_ font size controls. If a larger size is needed we provide the workaround suggested by Jacques in comment 1.
This change might be an easyhack.
Needs code pointer and mentioning of difficulty/required skill/topic.
