Discussing Character styles, the Help says of the particular style "No Character Style" that:
"No Character Style is actually the set of character properties of the current paragraph style. Choose
No Character Style to reset the character properties of the selection to those of the paragraph style."
That sounds fine -- a needed function (though it is new in LO 7, isn't it?).
Yes and No, this Character Style is called "Default" in older LibreOffice versions.
Do you know exactly when it changed? I'm searching for release notes.
But then how does that differ from the particular style "Default Paragraph Style" (about which the Help is
silent)? Is not the Default Paragraph Style already set by the current Paragraph style? What does it mean to designate
a Character style as "Default Paragraph Style"?
The "Default Paragraph Style" is sort of the mother of all paragraph styles, IMHO it should not be used, but
"Text Body" instead.
I'm sorry, but isn't "Text Body" a Paragraph style, not a Character style? My question is about the different purposes of the /Character/
styles "Default Paragraph Style" [about which, as I asked, What does it mean to designate a /Character/ style as "Default Paragraph
Style"?], "No Character Style" and "- None -".
Finally: though "- None -" is not among the pre-defined Character styles, it is among the parent choices when defining a new Character
style. How does the behavior of a Character style change when "Inherit from" is set to "Default Paragraph Font" vs "No
Character Style" vs "- None -"? [I have not detected a difference.]
Unfortunately, I did not understand your last paragraph (sorry). Why vs?
Sorry. The contraction "vs" [versus] is simply a shorthand way of contrasting members of a class.
In other words, what is the difference between Inheriting a Character style:
- from "Default Paragraph Font" or
- from "No Character Style" or
- from "- None -" ?
Here is some more, I hope, helpful information:
Thanks. I look forward to seeing that. Unfortunately, for the past hour the status of that URL is:
"Sorry! This site is experiencing technical difficulties."
"Try waiting a few minutes and reloading."
"(Cannot access the database: Unknown error (localhost))"
I will keep trying that, because it sounds promising. As you say, there is a change here (which
makes sense; Character styles have always suffered somewhat from unclear motivation). I'm sure that
there are release notes on this topic somewhere, but don't know where to find them. However, I will
continue looking, and am currently looking in:
I appreciate your response.
