Set my font too dark

Postby windsor224 » Fri Dec 20, 2019 8:42 pm

I think, somehow, when I set up OpenOffice I set my font to be very dark. I don't know where to change it. It's not on Bold, it's just extremely dark.

There is no general setting to make a font dark in OpenOffice. Is is a font with six or eight weights, or merely a font with the four standard weights (Normal, bold, italic, bold italic). If it has multiple weights, OO may have picked an intermediate weight rather than normal.

If you examine the fonts in Windows /Control Panel /Fonts, you may see six or eight weights listed for such a font. for the more usual fonts there are only the four styles I have listed.

What is the name of the font in question?
