Direct formatting is great when you are in sandbox mode, with dummy text. You can then easily and quickly adjust the formatting, see if it's any good and undo if not. Once you are satisfied, you should start a new document, then modify the styles that you need or make new ones. Then you won't need direct formatting, which, as you have now found, can totally mess up your document. Just apply the appropriate paragraph or character styles and you will get a clean, consistently formatted document. If you later decide to change the body text font size, all you have to do is modify the style. The different font sizes for English and Arabic text may be the resultbof the default settings in Tools Options Languages.
