The only other thing I can think of is that there's some step in creating and saving the template that you're missing.

If no one else can help, later I'll open Write in M$ Word and try to guess what step you might be missing.

  Thank you Eric.

I have a number of templates.  For example, templates for different types
of reports, memoranda, letters etc.

I did create a default template initially.  I thought it would be something
like the "normal" in MS Word.  It contained all the styles.  Then I created
one a template for a report based on the default.  Unfortunately neither
the default or the report template kept the list styles or paragraph styles
created in either.  The only thing that stuck was the fonts but those are
set as default in the User Preferences and not in the template.

I'm not sure how making one of these templates the default will fix the
missing styles within each of the templates as it hasn't worked so far.

Have you made your template your default template?

On Linux: Files/Templates/Manage Templates. Probably similar on Windows.

I'm using LO on Win11 and Mac.

I can't get the styles to work and stick in templates.  I've used styles
and templates in MS Word for 30 years before switching to LO in the past
years.  I've read the help, Writer User Guide and Designing with LO 2nd
and apparently have missed something conceptual as I can't get the styles
to stick within the templates.

I've created the styles in blank documents and then saved the document
as a
template.I expected that the paragraph, font, list formats & styles that
created would be saved in the template and reusable in subsequent
created from the templates.

But when I use the templates to create a new document, none of the
previously created styles are there.  I find I have to recreate all the
styles again as they aren't anywhere within the template.  So far it's
a colossal waste of time.

I've found that all the "Youtube University" and User Guides are
superficial when it comes to styles.  My goal is to set up a set of
corporate styles that can be used by numerous people in our organization
ensure consistency.

Can someone direct me to some more detailed documentation on how the
are supposed to work?  Perhaps with some more detailed documentation I
figure out what or how these are supposed to work ... or file a bug
Thank you in advance.
