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
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
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.
