I have been using LibreOffice for a while; currently have 188.8.131.52.
My school has certain standards for formatting. I have modified styles and used “update to current selection” successfully. I then copy one document an delete the text to write the next document. This gets me the same re-defined styles, with two exceptions.
I am not allowed to change the style of the footnote indicator.
Every time I copy a document, the style of the footnote text has been changed back to the default. I have to change it again, and the change lasts until I save and close the document. Until today! Today, when I tried to “update to current selection,” it instead changed the selection back to the default footnote style!
Is it a bug, or is there some special different way to handle footnotes? (If there is, it’s not a bug, it’s bad design.)
