 I hope I have a work flow problem. I'll describe what I want, then describe
what I did. And hopefully someone can show me 'the right way'.

I'm writing a book. I have chosen the path of creating a chapter template + 
a master document + a sub document per chapter. Getting it all setup at
first worked out just like the "Writers Guide chapter 13" said. Thanks doc
team. That was good.

But a week or so later, after I'm working on chapter three, I decide I want
something new in my template.... I want my font changed from liberation
serif to new times roman.  I cannot find out how to (simply) get that change
communicated to *all* my sub documents so that they obey the new font.


1) Put a user name in Tools>Options>"User Data"
2) File>Templates>Save... registers your template with your name within
the user settings. It will appear under File>New>Template... then. The
creator name will be shown in File>Properties...
3) Create a document from that registered template.
4) File>Templates>Edit... opens your registered template for editing.
Change some styles.
5) Open one of the documents that had been created from your registered
template. It will be compared with its source and you will be prompted
if you want to take over the style changes from the modified registered

Under File>Templates>Organize... you can drag around styles between all
registered templates and all loaded documents. In most cases you want ot
Ctrl+Drag&Drop (copy) stalys. You can also define one default template
per component to be used with File>New (Ctrl+N).

Unregistered templates that are stored anywhere else, on a flash drive,
CD or on the internet work as ordinary templates but of course they are
not personlaized nor do not track any changes.

I hope this helps,

P.S. This is all I know about templates as styles container for Writer,
Calc, Imporess and Draww. I don't know much about master documents. Why
do you use a master document for the different chapters of one book? Do
you want to reuse the same chapters in other books?
