I’m writing to ask about whether there are any solutions to a problem that myself and colleagues are facing. At times, created styles for headers and similar are resetting to plain text or changing without the use of the update style button.
Is this a version-specific issue potentially? If so, what is the most stable version for encountering minimal difficulties?
At present, my colleagues and I use V 184.108.40.206 Writer.
Edit: Documents are saved in .odt exclusively and the styles are typically applied with shortcuts/macros, however, this problem has occurred with manually selecting the style in paragraph/character.
We typically work from a template created in libreoffice, again in .odt format. From what I understand, this issue mostly occurs when editing older documents from previous LibreOffice versions - sometimes up to 1 year old. However, this is not exclusive, it has happened in recent documents also.
In terms of exact action being done when this issue occurs, it seems to happen predominantly when a proof reader is changing styles of certain headings from say ‘Heading 3’ to ‘Heading 1’ - and then occasionally the style will update Heading 3 to be Heading 1 - IE Heading 1 and 3 become identical.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
