I tried to create new odt document, made new styles and saved it as docx. And it works correctly. Something is wrong with my big document. How can I find the cause?

Try copying all and paste on a new file.

A universal piece of advise: if you need interoperability with M$ Office, export to DOC rather than to DOCX. I haven't had any problem of that kind with DOC.

I tried doc format and the behaviour is the same. The document was initially stored as a docx. When I got it, I converted it to odt, did a lot of changes and now I am trying to export it back to docx. When I did some changes directly to the original docx, the styles were stored correctly. Hence I did not expected that such a problem may occur and I worked long time with my odt version of the document.
