hello, thanks for helping, please help me with this:

i ve multiple occurences of two different para styles distributed across whole document. i want to convert all occurences of one style into another. going to each para and changing style is tedious so is there a way to convert all occurences together?

i dont want to make the properties of both styles similar so that one gets the same appearance, i want one style only at the end.
