Very important to learn for 2.8 is that the font size in the Tool Options
dialog controls the "default" size of the text object, while the on-canvas
dialog is a secondary size that only applies to selected text within that
object, i.e. you can mix different sizes/styles in the same text layer (similar
to a traditional word processor). Powerful, but you have to know it exists
For example, if you have a text object with a default size of 18pt but one word
in there is manually set to 12pt (67%), if you change the default size to 24
then the other word becomes 16 points (still 67%).
Numbers may not lie, but neither do they tell the whole truth.
