Hello Rafael

One very easy solution when copying and pasting, is to use paste special. Not sure what system you 
are using, but in macOS the command is Paste Unformatted Text. This means the paragraph and 
character styles are not pasted into the target file. After pasting the text uses the paragraph 
style you pasted into. You have to reapply any character styles if necessary.

This is the method I use when updating chapters to the 7.0 template.

Hope that helps.

´╗┐Hi Team,

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?
