"Replace Custom Styles"? Its description reads: "When in Writer: Replaces
the custom paragraph styles in the current document with the "Default", the
"Text Body", or the "Text Body Indent" paragraph style." In other words, why
would someone want to use this feature? Its default condition is checked, so
I'm assuming it has some desirability for a type of user, but to me it seems
like a measure of sabotage.

As I understand matters, there are some functions that work better with default styles instead of custom styles.

For example, I was writing a small book and set up a whole host of heading styles using names that followed the LaTeX conventions, "Chapter" "Chapter*" "Section" "Section*" etc. Then, I tried using the Elaix extension to convert the file to Epub format. Well, it didn't like my style names and, instead, wanted "Heading 1" "Heading 2" "Heading 3" etc. Also, I understand that, when modifying existing text with Autocorrect, it doesn't correct text in custom styles.

After spending hours creating my own templates and styles, I've learned its better to modify LO's styles rather to creating my own.
