A rather basic question: how do i create a new style from selection (lo x64)? The guide i 
have says to click the new style from selection icon in the styles and formatting window. Trouble 
is, i can't seem to find it. I have a new style icon with a dropdown but  that doesn't have a 
from selection option. And it doesn't seem to be an option in the styles menu. I've tried looking 
for a button in the modify toolbar window, but no joy there either. But it *must* be somewhere?

Hi Garry,

Here's how I use this facility in LO 5.2.x.x on Windows & Linux x64:

  * Manually format a paragraph with the attributes (eg. font, indents,
    color, bold, italic, etc.) you want the new style to have.
  * Highlight the manually formatted paragraph. (This may not be
    essential, but it's what I choose do.)
  * From the styles menu choose "New Style... Shift F11", or click the
    "New Style" icon on the formatting toolbar (Usually to the left of
    the font selection drop-down list.)
  * In the dialog that opens, give the new style a name and click OK.

Hope this helps.
