I want to modify the styles of one document to match the same styles from another document. I open document B, open Styles and formatting and click on the icon of the upper right corner, select Load from file and select document A. Nevertheless, the styles in document B do not become the same as in document A. For example, heading 2 in document A has Font Arial 12 while heading 2 in document B has font Liberation Sans 14

Should not all styles in document B had become as in document A? Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug?

That works fine for me with two test documents (Heading 1-3, Text Body),
LibreOffice 3.6.5, fonts: Liberation Sans, Calibri.

Do you have enabled the options ☑ Text ... ☑ Overwrite?

Test Document A (Liberation Sans)
Test Document B (Calibri)

It works with Overwrite enabled, I only had Text enabled.
