I am aware that a similar question has already been asked and answered. However, the solution doesn’t seem to work for me. I must not understand something. So, let me ask it again.
I run Linux Mint 18, Libre Office 5. After a great deal of work, I have managed to create a list style that works for me. I have it present in one .odt document. Now, I want to import it into a new .odt document. I read that I can do the following: 1) Bring up the “Styles and Formatting” pane. 2) Click on the icon for “List Styles”. 3) Press the “down arrow” for “New Style from Selection”. There is more, but this is where I get stuck. When I click on the icon for “List Styles”, the down arrow is greyed out. It is not greyed out when I click on the “paragraph styles” icon. It is the same for all my documents, far as I can tell.
What am i missing?
