Description ricky.tigg 2019-09-20 09:26:01 UTC
Make Help's text area's font size scalable.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Press F1;
2. Locate the cursor onto Help's text area which is located at the right side of the Navigation panel;
3. Attempt to increase font size by any mean.

Actual Results:
Text's font size rather small on my screen.


Expected Results:
Text area's font size to be larger enough to be easily readable; a mean could be: Press to get smaller or larger respectively 'Ctrl + -' and 'Ctrl + +', which is the way it operates in web-browsers.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Going to https://helponline.libreoffice.org/latest/ and View - Zoom - Zoom text only and using Ctrl+mousewheel, all text elements increase in size.
Can you be more specific about the problem?

I note you had your own interpretation of step 1 which is beyond my understanding. That very step did explicitly imply an installed LibreOffice suite. No need here to be messed with anything else, like URL that you exhibited. Case is as simple as it can be.

The F1 Help (either installed off-line or the online link @ Buovjaga lists) is now all CSS and JavaScript based and is viewed in your default system browser. 

It will respond to your Web browser controls. Make your adjustments as with any Web content.

Libreoffice's default system browser

Under Fedora  that "viewed in your default system browser" would be Libreoffice's own window, not in any installed Web browser unless you made modification to on your system.
