Hi, everyone.

Running LO 3.4.3 OOO340m1 (Build:302) on Ubuntu 11.04 (Linux 2.6.38-generic-pae) w/ Gnome 2.32.1.

Find myself having to cope with some very strange behavior of paragraph styles, not previously encountered in any version of OOo.

I defined my 'Default' style as follows: font Ubuntu 12 regular, no indents, single spacing, 0.00" before and after, justified.

As I begin a new document and type a one-line paragraph, then press Return to start a new paragraph, all is OK. If I press Return once more (adding an empty line), the previous paragraph gets indented without any prompting! When I go back to the previous paragraph with "ArrowUp", the style changes - without any prompting! - to Text Body...

If I go back to the beginning of any Default or Text Body paragraph and press Return twice, the paragraph is transformed into text that is both bold and increased in size...

All of this, though, merely scratches the surface of my paragraph-style misadventures in LO.

It's enough to drive me insane, to the point where I'm seriously considering returning to one of the recent versions of OpenOffice.

FWIW i DID carefully read the manual on styles and templates. Like I said: no problems in OOo, a disaster in LO. As an aside: can anyone tell me what difference there is between 'Default' and 'Text body'?

Can anyone offer any suggestions on how to correct / troubleshoot this?

Thanks in advance.
