Cannot get floating window for styles and format

F11 does nothing. was on updated to but still no window. I can’t find some of the styles I want e.g. footnote. Makes it very difficult to set up the templates I want. Worked OK in previous versions. Have I done something stupid?

However, Bizarrely – I’ve had this issue for a couple of days. Just re-opened Writer after dealing with some emails (including working on an .xlxs form and the floating window is there. I cannot see what, if anything I’ve done. I’m a bit worried that, if I close it it will disappear again - for ever. Is this just a random issue?

There is no known issue with the Style&Formatting window. You should try it in addition by enabling the side bar and using the Style&Formatting pane there.
