Hi :)
Is it possible to completely disable all the styles in a master
document so that the ones from the sub-document do remain untouched?

Tom :)

I would think that would take away the benefit of a master document. By having the style controlled by one master document, you get consistent formatting throughout. If that could be disabled, you could have different chapters with different formatting all because one or two chapter files had their styles set up differently.

I like the control provided by the master document. It frees me up to not think so much about formatting in my sub-documents knowing that the master will fix it all.

For example, I can create subdocuments using a Consolas font, an excellent typeface for onscreen editing. Then, I set the master document with Linux Libertine G, a great font for publishing, but not so great for onscreen editing. When I go to compile and print, voila, my master document is perfectly formatted, changing Consolas to Libertine *and* fixing any minor style deviations I may have inadvertently created.
