I have the following problem: I created my own 'Style' in one Writer file. Now I want to be able to use it in every Writer file that I will open (the existing ones) or create (when I create new files). How can I do this?

Thanks for help.

For files to create only:
Make the file you created the styles in a template and derive new files from it.

For existing files (also):
Manage templates
Open the template from which the existing files were derived for editing.
Create the styles or import them by pasting in objects having the wanted styles assigned.
Save the template.
If you now create a new document based on that template, it should contain the style (see above).
If you open a document for editing which was created earlier from that template you should be prompted for updating the styles.

Generally the named styles are copied and pasted together with objects having the styles as their property if there is not a name conflict.

Thank you. It is very helpful. The advice for existing files, it actually works to my suprise. It could be a little better, but ok, it works. Thanks again.
