The moment you think "this doesn't look right to me" is the moment that styles pays off.

Our unique visual look at the world is just what styles is all about.

When someone receives your document, there will be little questions that it is yours.

Not something you don't already know, but very important to the world around you.

So, it begs the question, when you are using Writer, should there be a menu item that asks "Change this style permanently?" so the your world grows instead of trying to predetermine everything?

I can't say I agree with Virgil. You can't help working with styles. Whenever you create a document, the default set of styles is automatically applied. When you create a numbered or bulleted list, you are applying the associated styles automatically. The other styles (e.g., heading styles) are there for you to use if you need them, no matter how short or one-off your document is. Learning to use the style system pays off handsomely, even if you only need the defaults.



I fully agree with you. Just learning how styles control so much in Writer is very helpful. But, I have spent literally hours setting up and modifying styles. While it has been a labor of love for me, it has been a labor and a major investment in time, time I might not have if all I'm trying to do is type a three paragraph letter. And, there have been those times when the styles just seem to want to fight against me. While I find such battles fun, they do often distract from the task at hand.
