Have you read the Getting Started with Styles chapter (in the
Getting Started Guide)? There are two important chapters in the Writer
Guide as well.
It looks like your problem is that you use copy (Control+C) and
paste (Control +V). Doing this will paste unwanted styles into the new
document. What you should be using is copy and paste special unformatted
text (Control Shift+Alt+V). Doing this will apply the style that already
exists in the position where you want to paste your text, table,

I am currently working with the Getting Started with Math chapter. However,
I am having a lot of trouble applying styles to this document.
Because this guide consists of copying and pasting some paragraphs from the
Math Guide, when I paste text into the document the pasted paragraph
inherits a different style than the one that was previously there. To fix
that, I select the pasted text and apply the style I want, for example
"Text Body". The problem is that the style has no effect on the document.
If I double click the style, it simply doesn't get applied to the selected
text. This has happened many times in this document.
I attached the file I'm working on now. On page 18, the first paragraph in
the "Writing derivatives" section is using the style "Definition Term", but
I want to change it to "Body Text". No matter what I do, I cannot apply the
desired style to this paragraph. I tried using 2 different machines and
operating systems, but the problem is still there.
I am using LO 7.0.3. Can anybody help me?
