Using Libre Writer 22.214.171.124.
My problem is that I can’t handle clutter on my screen. (Please bear with me here. I’m dealing with a learning disability and the only workaround that works is to eliminate clutter on my screen.) Writer has a styles menu in the sidebar as well as a rather clumsy, though useful, menu on the Home menu ribbon. While no doubt many people find the stock styles that come with Libre useful, I do not, and, with only rare exception, do I use them. I make sure to give the custom styles I create unique names, but they are difficult to access simply because there are so many stock styles to sort through. It helped to use the Applied Styles menu option, but even then the few stock styles I have used are mixed in and the tiny menu in the Home ribbon doesn’t seem to have that option. What I would like to do is simply delete all the stock styles so that they don’t show up, ever. Can that be done?
A more real and workable solution would be for the developers to place all the stock styles in an “add/remove” menu. Then we could add, to the active style menus, the styles we want to show up for our use and ignore the rest of them, thus avoiding all the clutter. Even people who don’t deal with my particular learning disability should like that system.
