Is it something that you could share? Perhaps another pair of eyes would help. I would personally like to try; send me a copy directly if you want.

Thanks for helping. I am not a new user. I have been using Linux since 1994 or so and libreOffice or is predecessor for 15 years or so. I am very familiar with paragraph styles. This problem continues to beat me.

        I am using 6.3, vanilla ubuntu. I continue to have a lot of

        called "Default paragraph font" or something else and no
        amount of removal of direct formatting or using ctrl-m helps.
Anyone got any ideas?

    Your problem is obviously not direct formatting at all: it is with the
    style that has been applied to this paragraph. All you have to do is to
    change the font this style uses to get the font that you want.

    F11 will open the Styles dialog on the right side of LIbreOffice. Make
    sure that paragraph styles is selected (far left icon at the top).
    Select the offending paragraph. The style that controls the attributes
    of this paragraph is highlighted. Right click the style and select
    "Modify..." Click the Font tab and then select the font you want to use
    from the list. Close this dialog.

    I have been rather detailed because I am not sure you know how to change
    the properties of a style. I would also recommend (if you have not done
    so already) that you download the Styles chapter in the Getting Started
    Guide. The Writer Guide has one or two chapters on styles as well. It
    would be a good resource.
