Changing Menu Font Size in OpenOffice 3.1


Maybe I've missed something obvious, but I can't figure out how to increase the size of the font in the OO menu ("File Edit View ...").

The old "Tools/Options/Fonts" doesn't change the menus.

I assume you are talking about the font size in the OpenOffice user interface (menus and dialogs), yes?

If so, go to Tools ... Options ... OpenOffice.org ... View ... User Interface ... Scaling (set to your preference). The change takes effect immediately.

Yep, that did the trick. I simply didn't realize what that "Scaling" option actually achieved.
