Styles compatibility with files created in Google Docs

Hi everyone!

I have exported a file from Google Docs with styles used in it in two formats: (1) .odt, and (2) .docx. When I open either of them in LO Writer (6.0.4.2 (x64)) the styles appear different from the default styles that would appear if I open a blank LO writer document. I wouldn't have a problem with that but those styles do not index in the Navigator/Headings and the document is pretty long so it's kind of difficult to navigate (Interestingly, otther attributes of the document do index such as tables, images, hyperlinks, etc.). Next, I tried to Load Styles (from the Styles menu) hoping that I could load the default styles with no success. First, I tried loading Categories -> Styles and then from Templates -> Default. Nothing really changed. Then I loaded other styles, and then again the Default and again nothing.

So my question would be: how to index the styles of a document exported from another word processor in the navigator, or how to load the default styles (as they are indexed in the navigator)?

Thanks!

PS

What works for me is Ctrl + A and Ctrl + C in the exported document and then Ctrl + V in a new LO Writer document but I believe there should be a solution in the Styles Menu that I am missing.
