It should behave similar to the 'Font Name' button and open the Character dialog in Writer and Impress/Draw and the Format Cells dialog in Calc.

Confirming, still an issue. No response to Button action. While showing the Increase and Decrease button action do work with toolbar in vertical orientation.

Toolbars are flexible and can dock at horizontal and vertical positions. We have to deal with this and make interactions available (or hide the controls, which is worse). I agree with the suggested solution in comment 3 to open the properties dialog.

STR as in OP remain an issue, mitigated somewhat with adoption of TB locking. The 'Font Size' widget is non-functional for TB in vertical orientation. Widget needs adjustment, or alternative when in vertical mode launch the 'Character' dialog to match behavior of the 'Font Name' dialog.
