I'm working with a really big file so manual stuff is out of the question, therefore I ask for help :)

Say I just selected a specific style via "Search and Replace" that is the main body of the text. I'd like to delete text that uses other styles, but since there are almost a hundred other styles, I cannot pick each style via "Search and Replace" and hit delete.

So, since I have the main body text selected, can I invert it somehow and then hit delete?

Kindly appreciated :)

@Mike_Kaganski yes, I did try that, but copying and pasting removes newlines for whatever reason.

2019-03-19 18:25:36 +0200 marked best answer Filter for ODS in --convert-to is not OpenDocument Spreadsheet Flat XML

I've found the filter for this format here: https://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoff... as suggested in this topic: https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/questi....

When I type in the command:

libreoffice6.2 --convert-to ods="OpenDocument Spreadsheet Flat XML" *.doc

I get an error:

Error: no export filter for /media/.../test/Absent_en.ods=OpenDocument Spreadsheet Flat XML found, aborting. Error: no export filter

I tried other combinations like doc>pdf and doc>odt and they all worked just by writing odt and pdf into the command, but for some reason even that lengthy filter is not enough!

Please help

P.S Other sites (like this one: http://www.ubuntubuzz.com/2016/08/lib...) propose using

libreoffice6.2 --headless --convert-to ods *.doc

but even adding --headless doesn't work
