Description Cor Nouws 2014-04-01 13:25:12 UTC
1. Start new document
2. Apply Heading 1
3. Context menu > Format paragraph style
   Tab Font, select field size
     This has the value 130% (might be a different percentage)
     This is the percentage of the size of the style Header, 
     from which it inherrits values/settings)
4. Now type a font size in points, e.g. "14pt"

  > At the moment that one types the p, there is a delay of appr. 3 seconds..

It should be a close instant change
