The font sizing in calc are way off. I have checked view settings, but nothing I can find makes a difference.

Here's a screenshot comparing to writer (which is the correct size compared with other applications).

calc vs writer fonts

I'm running on Ubuntu 14.04.

TIA, Greg

Dunno if, but you might be able to attach an ss now.

If I have understood the problem correctly. On my Linux-Mint system, I can view and set the font selection and size for a spreadsheet, like in Writer it is on the Formatting toolbar. Select VIEW > TOOLBARS > FORMATTING. This switches the formatting toolbar on and off. Then adjust the font as with Writer.

You can access the Spreadsheet Cell Styles to change the default font settings by F11 > STYLES AND FORMATTING > CELL STYLES > DEFAULT > MODIFY. Then adjust the fonts to suit for the default and heading styles...Peter
