It is possible that there is some direct formatting applied to the text.

Among other things, what determine the final look of text, it first apply
the paragraph style, then the character style, then the direct formatting.
Those two can be changed independently. For example, applying the bold
attribute by hand (using the B button in the toolbars) change the direct
formatting. If you then apply a style, it will not override the direct
formatting of the text.

Usually, if using styles correctly, you shouldn't apply attributes by hand
*at all*. To check if this is the issue, you can delete direct formatting
quickly by selecting the text, and use the "Format->Delete direct
formatting" menu (or something like that; I'm not sure about the english
UI, but it's the first command in the "Format" menu).

I have on several occasions been annoyed by something in LO - just a small
thing, but none the less: Normally, when you apply a style, like a header
style, it sets the typeface etc, but sometimes it doesn't.

I think it happens in situations like this: I write a section of text,
apply some character formatting (eg. bold or a different font), then decide
to break the section up and insert a heading in between - and it "doesn't
work", ie the font doesn't change etc. Why is that?

Is this the way it should be, or is it a bug? If it is a feature, what am
I doing wrong?
