Please correct me if I am wrong. LO does not have global styles, styles
are stored in documents. Default styles are those in default documents.
Hence your suggestion to have 2 different templates for each of the
first page styles. When you load the template you get the styles in that

I note I can modify the First Page style but what I think I need to
do is create a new "first page" style called say "Home Address

and save it as "Home Address Letter" Is that right?
o Open the Styles & Formatting window.
o Click on the Page Styles icon.
o Double-click on First Page. (This applies First Page page style to
the page containing the cursor.)
o Click on "New Style from Selection" and then "New Style from

page style with your new name.

In fact I need two letter first pages, one for office and one for
home so further help would be appreciated.
It would be easier to create one first page style in each of two
separate templates, wouldn't it? You'd never want two first pages in
The second question concerns fonts. I am used to having the font
included within the style definition. Is this possible with LO?
Yes, but fonts are hardly page properties - so they are not a property
of page styles. Fonts are a property of paragraph styles (and of
character styles). Your templates will have default paragraph styles
(perhaps Default or "Text body"?), and you can select a preferred font
in each of those - or, indeed, in multiple paragraph styles.
