Description PeMaGonGo 2011-02-01 15:42:42 UTC
Hi ppl,
lately I was writing a formulary for my exam, after the work I noticed, that I had space free and wanted to set the font size bigger... there I saw, that it isn't possible to change the font size for all formulas at once... I had to open each one and change the font size... one a formulary... you know how much time I spent on it? you don't wanna know...
anyway there I thought... why isn't there a formatting pattern for formulas? or why can't you give formulas one?
This question is my idea for it. What do you think about it?

greetings

Made an assumption concerning Version.

[Reproducible] with "LibreOffice 3.4Beta2  – WIN7  Home Premium  (64bit) German UI [DEV300m103 (Build:1)]". Corresponding style dialog contains several possibilities to modify size, Wrapping, Background and several other properties of the forula frame, what will applied for all formulas in the document in time. But there is no way to use the basic character size in that dialog.

@Jonas:
Not really your area, but may be related?

Hello,

As a workaround, a macro is proposed on French wiki:

Bug 32419 added to See Also list as these two requests are related, with this one being the superset.

Any news on this issue?
In the academic field, this is crucially needed.
Indeed, if you write a scientific article with many formulas for one journal, and then want to submit it to another journal with a different style (e.g. different fonts), you have to edit the formulas one by one.
Comment 12 Frederic Parrenin 2017-04-10 17:23:29 UTC
I just tried the provided macro and it works great!
I still think that styles would be a more convenient and discoverable way to approach this issue, though.

there is an extension for changing font and font size for all formulas in document by one time https://extensions.libreoffice.org/extensions/formatting-of-all-math-formulas
Comment 14 Frederic Parrenin 2018-07-16 09:00:51 UTC
Good to know this extension.
This solves my problem.
Maybe I would still prefer to have styles for formulas, which would be more consistent and more powerful, since you could have two different styles.

Copied from bug 75493 comment 2:

The suggested way is currently not possible, because each formula is indeed an autonomous document, which is inserted as OLE object. The graphic style can only work on the shown replacement graphic but not on the formula document itself. In addition, the graphic styles in Writer do not have a property 'font size'.

Major modifications in the code would be necessary to implement such a feature.

Not duplicate, but related issue https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=32419

I use Basic macros for this purpose.
