       One of the reasons I first download OO - now LO - was due to the
ease of copying in the .txt documents;
          [well, the Impress program impressed me over MSFT's poor one]

       Has this changed? ... if I were to determine how to update from .4
to .5, would I too have the problems which are noted below  ;-(

Greetings to you all.  I'm new to Libre Office.

I'm wondering if there's a way to duplicate/replace attributes from one
paragraph to another in so that they are formatted identically.

A frequent problem for me (typically when I copy & paste from elsewhere)
is that two sentences/paragraphs just won't line up properly (perhaps even
in a numbered list), I assume due to various formatting reasons including
different fonts, sizes, tabs, margins, alignment, and/or anything else that
might affect placement and display on the page.  They seem to be the same
in the original source as far as I can tell, but once copied and pasted to
a document in Libre some of the paragraphs seem to get out of wack.

Trying to apply the exact same attributes to the paragraph or sentence
that's out of wack just doesn't seem to work - probably because I don't
know what attributes have been applied and/or simply don't know how to get
the same effect in a consistent way.

Perhaps there is an "attribute tree" mode so that I can see what set of
attributes has been applied?  Either just plain text or perhaps through a
graphical representation maybe?  I guess I don't need to see it if I can
simply apply from one to another - sort of like the eye dropper from a
paint program copies the color from one spot so you can apply the same
color to another spot only here instead of color, it would be text
placement & display attributes.

Thank you in advance.
