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 Letter"
style.  I don't know how the style properties for the first page are
created but I presume I can modify the "First Page" style 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 Selection".
o Give your new style a name. You now have a copy of the First Page page
style with your new name.
o Right-click on the new style in the list and select Modify... .
o Modify your new page style as required.

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
one document.

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.

Hi Brian,
Sorry to be so thick but all the above went well until I revisited the page styles having shut down LO and started again later. Sadly the new style I had created following your steps above was not there! I have looked for a "save" option but cannot find one. How do I fix the newly created page style so it is available in the menu in future?
