Styles from Word doc do not work in LO

I have a Word document that I have opened in LO and saved to the LO format.

However, the styles that were in the Word document now don’t seem to actually work in the LO document.

If you select text or have the cursor in a paragraph, and then click a different style in the style browser, nothing happens.

Do styles that were in a Word doc not work in LO?

LO: Latest for Mac
OS: El Capitan

Styles from a .doc/.docx generally do work in LO. However, to assign a style from the style panel, you need to double-click it—a single click will just highlight it.
