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
That sounds fine -- a needed function (though it is new in LO 7,
Yes and No, this Character Style is called "Default" in older
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
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 -".
I must have misunderstood that then.
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 -" ?
Well, vs was and is already clear to me.
However, your juxtaposition as a question is unclear to me.
I will try to give an answer, in the hope that it answers your question
Let's look at it from the text. Let's say you have written 10 paragraphs
and each paragraph has a different paragraph style.
Now you want to bold one word in each paragraph. You select the words
and assign the character style "Strong Emphasis" to each.
Now you have added one word too many with the character style sheet
You now select the word and assign the "No Character Style" character
style sheet. The word now has its old format meaning again.
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))"
This should be fixed.
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.
