# Some text changes font size when re-opening

3 1 2

Hi there. I have a document in which I have a mix of Times New Roman (12pt) and Courier New (10pt) fonts used. Every time I reopen the document, there are some blocks of text which have changed font size, usually around the point of font change or around the use of italics.

For example (using the pre tag to help demonstrate):

Here is a paragraph in Times New Roman 12pt.

Here is a paragraph in Courier New 10pt.


Here is a paragraph with italics in Times New Roman 12pt.

If I save, close, and reopen this document, the second TNR paragraph is likely to be in 9pt TNR rather than 12pt, beginning or ending right at the italicized word. This is most noticeable when I close LibreOffice completely and restart it--then the entire page might be similarly affected.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Do you use the native file format odt, to save the files?. One thing you can try is reset the user profile: wiki.documentfoundation.org/UserProfile, many times solves strange issues.

I am embarrassed to admit I didn't think of that (I had been saving it as .doc). Saving it as an .odt seems to have resolved the issue. Thank you very much!
