"Chris J."<>  dijo:

Is there a list of common mistakes I can look at to try figuring out
I'm dong wrong?
Mistake 1) You didn't mention page styles. They would solve some of
your problems.

Mistake 2) Once you get a document created with the formatting and
styles that you want, but still blank, before adding the actual text,
save it as a template. Next time you want to create a new document do
'New > From templates' instead of just 'New.'

Most publishers offer a list of formatting requirements for manuscript
submissions, and many provide templates for major word processors, plus
LO also has numerous templates for manuscripts. There are also various
style manuals on the market. Why invent the wheel when someone has
already done it? Just open a new document based on the required
template, and there you are, ready to go to work.

Obviously I have more reading to do. Thank you. Much appreciated.
