Hi Jean François

Yes, that is about the topic. Indiscriminate proliferation/fragmentation
of styles is undesired and adds complexity that can kill the style
purpose. The styles window (F11) falls short to address the problem. A
management tool is welcome.

Hi Olivier & all.,

just jumping in the bandwagon for a quick self-ad ;)

I don't know if that might be of interest for that purpose, but I'd want
to make you know that I've been working on such a tool for some time
now. This "WriterStylesReporter" is meant to become a Writer extension [1].

Its functionalities are:

-- documenting the paragraph and character styles by creating report
under Calc (another report with Writer is scheduled)
Note: not all styles details are reported, only the ones I consider
being of importance.

-- suppression of unused styles

FWIW, I've placed a demo report and a screenshot in a zip file, here:

[1] This is inspired by an extension (acStyleInspect) by Alain de la
Chaume, that seems to be unavailable for some time now.
