Maybe I'm not understanding your problem, but ...
it should take less time to 'select all' -> paste into notepad
[thereby removing all formatting]
-> 'select all' and paste into a new LO blank document.
At this point, 'select all' and click on the formatting you desire;
then scan through to catch the footnotes to place them back in
I've done this a few times; time is about 15 minutes; having to scan
through those footnotes which have become out of line ;-)
save time at this point by 'find'ing each by number ;-)

Thanks for your suggestion but it isn't a way I can walk.
I have documents of more than 500 pages, if I must reformat all I never end
I can't remove all formatting and start from scratch because it take too
I can't remove all blank paragraphs because many of them are useful.
I can't use regex for automatize the work.
It's really a sin.
So well, I must work on Office Word first for formatting document and then
I would want to work totally on libreoffice but it isn't possible
Thanks to all

When I do this, nothing is lost except the formatting ...
merely 'select all' -> copy -> paste to notepad -> all the
text will be there; just re-format everything and place back in line ;-)

This may not be much help, but when I have been faced with a converted
that was such a formatting mess, I would just save it as a plain text
and format from scratch, creating and applying the specific Styles I
wanted. There are drawbacks to this, as you will lose some of your
such as footnotes.

Subject: [libreoffice-users] Styles and regular expression in libreoffice
I'm on libreoffice 3.6 italian version
I'm working on many ebook in epub format.
Fortunately libreoffice has a great extension, writer2epub, who's
My problem is that original files (word exported by indesign) are a mess
with styles, fonts, etc
Really a chaos.
I need some way to get some works on styles via reg ex but I've found
nothing, nor in the help, nor in the wiki, nor of useful on internet
My first need is to modify lines before and after the chapter title.
In my doc I've a blank line, a line with the chapter title and one or
more blank lines all in header1 style
I haven't found a way to select styles via regex and I can't simply
change all the blank lines because they are in many different styles
I've already searched on internet and in the libreoffice/openoffice
forum but I haven't find any solutions.
Can you help me?
