For what it's worth, I don't recognise that.

... 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?

Styles are saved in documents.  If you saved the document you were
working in when you created the styles, the styles will still exist in
that document.  (If you didn't, they won't!)  If you want to use them in
another document, you can import them using the Load Styles... facility
in the Styles & Formatting window.

But in your case, you appeared to want these styles in documents in the
form of letters, so the sensible way forward would be to create an
otherwise empty document with any headings you wanted and your new
styles.  Then save that document as a template (File | Save as
Template).  When you want to create a new letter, instead of starting
with a default blank document, start from your new template and then
save the document so created as the new letter.

You'll probably want two new templates, one for each of your letter
types and each containing just one set of new styles appropriate to that
letter type.

Hi Brian,
Ok but what puzzles me is that in Styles & Formatting window, Page Styles tab, there are 10 or so styles listed, including the "first page" to which you referred me earlier.

What I had intended to do was create a new "first page" page style from it, and save as say "letter_first_page" so that it appeared in this list when I next opened it. I could then import that into two new documents which I would edit to further to create the two templates I need at present.

Meanwhile I find I have created a template which looks OK starting with all defaults I assume and to which I have added a header.

When I tried to change the style to "first page" so that the header would not appear on the second page, the header that I had typed vanished and I was presented with a blank header!

I shall keep trying.
