Abiword toolbar fonts very small


I'm using abiword on Debian Sid. The toolbar menu fonts are too small. I understand you are supposed to change them in ~/,gtkrc-2.0 but this does not have any effect. I don't use Gnome or KDE. Anyway to solve this?

I very frankly suggest using OpenOffice, instead.

However... you need to explain your configuration to us more completely. If you "understand you are supposed to change them in...", etc., please cite the source URL of your information.

Yes, I do use libreoffice in preference to abiword, but I had abiword in my mailcap file to read msdos attachments to emails. But I find that lowriter works equally well so I will switch to that.
