I've clicked some mysterious keys by accident. Now, when I open a new text document in Writer 6.0 the text size is huge, even though the display says font size is 10. Existing documents are fine, as they were. I've updated Libre Office, rebooted, changed font and size, can't find the way to reset to defaults. I'm running W10, 64 bit ...

Hmm. Somehow I magnified new docusment so 550%. I noticed, moved the slider back to 100? What made that happen?

Ctrl and mouse scroll triggers document zooming, also Ctrl+ combination. Or maybe just a click that went to the wrong point: it happens to me a lot :)

If the font still says 10 pts, then the culprit is the zoom level. At the bottom right of Writer's window you'll find the zoom controls: change it back to 100%.

If that's not the case, please upload a sample file with the problem.

Zoom is set to 100% and same issue happen here. The styles support is faulty here I think.

Little bit of criticism. I understand bugs but having more than 1 report about bugh of this severity means auto-removal of binaries available for download until bug is fixed.

Oh really? Do you have a working solution for PEBKAC?
