How is the size of the font used in LO Writer Help increased? Currently, I have to strain my eyes to read the very tiny-sized text.

My LO: 3.4.3 OOO340m1 (Build:302)

My Linux OS: MEPIS 11 (Roadblock version- 32 bit)

The font size (right pane) in the Help window F1 is dependent on the selected zoom factor of an HTML document.

  • (Writer) Menu: File > New > HTML Document
  • (HTML document) Menu: View > Zoom... (choose 100%, or your preferred size) > OK
  • Press F1

You could click inside help window and Ctrl+Scroll up with mouse.

If you have available a functioning mouse... ;)

Having no mouse might be the problem then, I could easily propose a solution for that as well :) Unfortunately that would include spending some money.
