Writer interface font size

Good morning
Just installed LibreOffice 6.0.4 (on the computer where I had problems
with copying).

Because I am getting older and my vision deteriorates,
the fist thing I always do with new/upgraded software is to increase
interface font size.

I know how to increase the size of the icons in the menu bars,
but unfortunately I could not yet figure out how to increase the
interface font size.
There seems to be no such item under "Options"

Could somebody please direct me to the relevant setting (in the hope,
there IS such setting).
Thank you
Thomas

In Windows 10 you can increase the size of the fonts for all
applications using:
- rightcLick the windows logo, and choos System
- choose Display
- under 'Change the size of text, apps, and other items', choose a
higher percentage (i.e. 125%)

Thank you, but that is not what I am looking for.
Most of my applications are individually set to the (interface) font
size that I like best.
I was hoping that LibreOffice let's me choose among some options ...

Re: Writer interface font size

Hi Thomas,

the feature "scaling" has been removed in LO 5.3. The request to bring
it back is in https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=101646

Kind regards
Regina

​Like Thomas, I think it would be useful to bring the scaling feature
back....

Eye issues are one of the reasons why I decided to be proactive with a
20+ inch desktop monitor or use a 29 inch TV as a monitor. I have a 17
inch laptop as well.  I did this knowing my eyes will get worse over the
years and starting to get use to alternatives before I need them.

Well right. But (a) one shouldn't have to spend extra on larger
monitors to get an font size one can read and (b) if you set your
expectations whilst your eyes are still OK, aren't you worried that
you'll need to buy an even bigger monitor as and when your eyesight
does deteriorate?

Thank you.
Yes, I know that I can do that.
However .. that applies to the font of the text your are writing and NOT
the interface.

Monitor size: I already use a 24-inch monitor at home.

That will happen regardless of when the first "large" monitor is
purchased.  What some people do, to avoid the cost of purchasing bigger
and bigger monitors, is purchase a high end digital projector.
(Typically, these can enable a screen size of up to 300 inches.)

I bought the larger monitor, when the old one need replacing. Also, I
had upgraded to a full HD graphics card a few months before, when some
of my packages started needing a larger resolution. DeVeDe is one that I
use that no longer fit on a screen with 1366x768. The 17 inch laptop is
my only one that has a large enough resolution.

To be honest, I only buy new hardware when I have some "extra" money to
afford it.  I had some unexpected money come in last spring, so I bought
a mobility "scooter", the new laptop, a video projector, and other
things in order of need to want. With the large resolution laptop, I use
it with the largest resolution, but when my eyes get worse I can reduce
the resolution. Same with the large monitor. The HD TV as a monitor was
originally for streaming online content, since I did not want to pay
double/triple the cost for a "smart" TV. Also, it is great to have a
volume control on a remote when you want to listen to music or audio
books while not close to the player. I do not like to use my phone that
way if I am in my apartment.

AS FOR the font size, I know several people who do need larger font
sizes to use a computer - most time a laptop is used with access
packages like "Onboard" and "Screen Reader" in Linux, or similar types
of software on Windows. Also there has been studies about what makes a
font easier to read the text better than a different font. I have used a
web page "stylesheet.css" file to control the font size and font type.

My default style sheet contains several colors in various sizes and
serif and san-serif fonts - listed from preferred to generic with fonts
that were installed by default on Windows and Mac systems when I created
it.  It really is nice that LibreOffice has the control of the font
sizes for the menus and other internal use of text.  I have packages
that do not do that - which is too bad for them and their low vision users.

        {

        font-family: "Georgia", "Palantino Linotype", "Book Antiqua",
"Times New Roman", "Times", serif;

        }

#n10blue
       {
       font-family: "Tahoma", "Geneva", "Verdana", "Arial", "Hevetica",
"Trebuchet MS", "Monico", san-serif;
       color: #000080;
