When you define a style based on another one, you are not allowed to specify the character size as a percentage of the style you are basing on.

The feature would be very useful, and supposedly it's simple to implement, since it's implemented in writer.

Just an update:

Bodhi Moksha

Not implemented.

Requesting developer input as I wonder if this might be an interesting easy hack.

It is implement in Version:
Build ID: a7567a46e5d2953c320b13eb88a3981c4f9bd1e0
CPU Threads: 4; OS Version: Windows 6.1; UI Render: default; 
Locale: de-DE (de_DE)

So I set worksforme.

It works correctly for font size in paragraph style. For font size in character styles it is correct in the file, but the UI does not adapt automatically. So you need to save and reload to see the change, if the size in the parent style is changed. But that is a bug and therefore needs a new bug report.
