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