The problem is rather easy to explain: how to change the font size/color/boldness of the row/column numbering in a LibreOffice Calc document on Ubuntu 15.10 (LO version is the default

Is it possible to do it at all? How?
I need to print screen LO and use it in a PDF file for educational purposes (to teach other how to use it).
The default style, when printed and then fotocopied results in a very light shade, almost not readable.

To give an example, I would like to change the style of "A", "B", "C" and so on in this image http://i.stack.imgur.com/0l2ic.png


Change the operating system to use a High Contrast theme. To do this, I clicked the System Settings icon in the Unity tray, then clicked Appearance. The theme was set to Ambiance (default) which I changed to High Contrast.

As far as the font size, I tried using unity-tweak-tool to change the system default size as described in How do I change fonts and adjust their size?, but it didn't seem to work on my system. I didn't try very hard though.

Instead of changing the font size of the headers to be bigger, why not change the cell text size to be smaller. Then the headers will look relatively bigger in the screen capture, which you can zoom in or enlarge as needed.

  • This is a very ugly workaround, though... – dadexix86 Mar 4 '16 at 9:54
