Using LO on PCLOS-64-KDE. LO version 4.1 Writer. I need to have two setups--I think you guys call them "styles"--one of which I will use to edit imported documents, which will then be sent to a publisher, and the other of which I will use for new originations from me.

1. The _imported_ file should be printed in Times New Roman, at whatever pitch it comes in at--10, 12, 14, etc. It should have any quotation marks or apostrophes that are straight lines converted to curly quotes. It should remove any paragraph indents. It should double space lines. It should convert double word-spaces to single. It should never sub- or super- script anything automatically. When some other function is applied, such as converting a portion of the text to fully justified, or changing type size, _nothing else should change_!

2. The _original_ document should be printed in Times New Roman, 12 point, using smart quotes, single line spacing, no automatic super- or sub- scripts, no paragraph indents, and when some other function is specified at work time, such as changing justification or centering, or
type size, _nothing else should change_!

Everything should be saved in /home/doug/Documents in Microsoft 1997--2003 .doc format, regardless of what format it came in at. Always!

There should be some extremely easy way of selecting version 1 or version 2 above.

(I am not interested in any other features. I don't write books or college papers, or anything else, and I don't like surprises, such as
the whole format or layout changing when some simple change is applied.)

I would really appreciate if someone out there reading this could set this up for me. (I think number 1 is the difficult one--number 2 is almost the default, I think (hope!). I have a great deal of trouble with number 1--like when I try to set up curly quotes, the only way I know how
is to use the auto-format thing, and then all sorts of other things change.
