Open Office tools>options dialog box size
 
I am newbie, and my profession has NOTHING to do with computing. I have just installed Debian-based latest MEPIS distro (KDE), opened OOO 2.0 went to tools>options, and this dialog box appeared HUGE! It doesn't fit into desktop! Fonts in drop-down menus and buttons in OOO look oversized as well!
Is there a way to make the options window (dialog box) fit into my screen?
I have GTK-Qt Theme Engine installed, but this doesn't help! Do not know if Open Office GTK-based or not. By the way my GTK apps will use my KDE fonts, but won't fully use my colors (well, at least my drop-down menus are not black!) My theme is Plastic, colors are Keramic Emerald.
Can anyone please help me with OOO?

Go to the Tools menubar item and choose View on the Options on the left. In that window there's a section called User Interface. Lower the Scaling to get the fonts to the desired size. This should cause the dialogs to fit around the font size. I have to say, this doesn't seem to be the most obvious way to do this from a UI perspective.
