pls, how to do that?

my problem:

I will learn a difficult new language (Korean) and write myself the text of my lessons in Calligra.

To read easily the difficult Hangul signs (Korean writting using ibus-hangul) I will write them in very large format (size 22 alt. 24 bold for the titels). The other one (translations etc. in occidental languages and line no. in the lesson from 1 .. x) in normal size, of course! The most traditional Korean font I did find is «UnGungseo» (yes at the bottom of the extra long font list :'( !) and actually the system, as implemented in Kubuntu 17.04 change always the font to déjavu (at the begin of the same long fonts list :'( xD ) so that the most expensive work for me to do is to interchange the font as well as the font size!

it is idiotic!

it is probably possible to define somewhat as the line body (UnGungseo 22 pt) and a second part as the comments and no. in the line (déjavu or somewhat different, size about 12)?

how to do that?

You could set up styles with the desired font and font size, one for the Korean text and for the translations.

Alternatively you can simply write one line and set up the formatting as you want, and then copy and paste it to the next lines, so that the formatting is preserved and you just need to change the actual text.

Hi

thank you for those explanations but they are really far of my intentions. I will use a Text processing software to avoid Latex! If I have to do about the same as in Latex, it would be preferable to forget Calligra completely and go repentant to Latex...

My main problem is that I will totaly eliminate "dejavu" for the document: it is possible to write English as well as my languages (French / German) with UnGunseo.

Probably I need a «new blank document» with the name "myLessons" but I don't know how to establish it correctly.

My second main problem is that I would prefer the char size "22" as main size and not the (in this use) ridiculous size "12".

How to do that?

Kind regards

I'd guess what you want is to create a template which has some things set up for you, including the default font type and size.

Doing some searching, I find documentation around templates in Calligra woefully lacking, which is unfortunate.
I do see in the File menu an option to Create Template from Document... which you should be able to use to create such a template.

Setting up Styles in calligra is not difficult or similar to Latex.

However if you don't want to use styles that should be fine too for your use case as said before:

If a font (UnGunseo in your case) is once set while there is no text selected, it should not change until you change it by yourself. So after you create the document, just choose this font before writing or selecting anything and things should be fine.

Regarding the second problem: do you mean that if you copy & paste a line containing two different font sizes, sometimes the second size is used for the whole inserted line?
This seems to be a bug indeed, but it can luckily be bypassed. Select not only the current line but also the line break of the previous line and copy the whole thing. If you then paste the it, all the sizes are preserved and you don't even have to hit the Return key ;)
