Linux mint 20 Cinnamon 64 bit. When creating a new style, after the name there should be a Next_style box. I get the name box and then the Inherit from box but no Next_style box. This lesson shows this box. Subsequently no page styles are applied, I need background image. This problem was experienced on Mint 19.3 as well. upgrading did not resolve it. How do I resolve this?

  • Which LibreOffice version?
  • Which package repository (Mint's default, PPA, TDF[])?
  • Are you sure creating a new Page Style or are you in fact defining a new Character Style, which has no Next Style?

My Mint 20 shows
