I found my documents (LO) accumulated a pile of rubbish, styles, etc.
from documents I import from. Copy/pasting from word docs copies the
styles into the LO doc.
When I merge content from multiple documents (.doc, .docx, .odt, PDFs)
into my documents I use an intermediary document to cleanse the
copy/pasted content and apply the styles I want before copy/pasting
again into my final document and this way my final document only has
the look and styles I want.
This post gave me an idea to look at the find command (Edit > Find and
Replace... or Ctrl-F) dialog to see if it would search for a particular
style. I discovered that it does, under More Options! I ran some tests
and it does highlight the text with the selected style. This could be a
way to find and change those pesky imported styles. When all are
changed to the wanted style, then one could delete the now unused
style. I discovered long ago that LO will not delete a style which is
in use (duh). Finding all of them had been my problem until now.
Possibly selecting a new style and "Replace All" may solve your problem,
or at least make it less labor-intensive.
