Open Office UI fonts


After a huge struggle to get my fonts on FC3 looking fairly decent, I still get the odd app that throws up some horrible fonts.

This time its OpenOffice 1.1.3

I have googled and followed the instructions that is suppose to change them. i.e. tools, options, font, check apply replacement table, Andale Sans UI replace with my font, tick it and apply to always.

However, when I do this nothing changes at all and I am still stuck with massive fonts for the UI, for example when I click on tools, the menu that appears takes up half of the screen because the fonts are too big.

thanks

Check for a font named: "Interface User" and do the same for it. I don't know about OO 1.1.3 but that's what I did in OO 1.1.4
