Using latest Writer (18.104.22.168 (x64))
I’m trying to create a new template and have been following the guidelines in the Help pages.
Nevertheless, whatever I do it keeps reverting to the styles in the default template.
For example, I want Text Body and most Headings in Oranienbaum. I create a document with those styles and save it as a new template. When I reload that template the original text I entered is still in Oranienbaum, but if I hit Enter to start a new paragraph, and select, say, Heading 1, it has now reverted to the default Liberation Serif. If I then select Body Text as a style, it has now gone back to Liberation Serif.
I have tried various variations of Template (ott) and Text (odt) files, but this problem persists.
Using Windows 10.
In detail, here is how to reproduce the problem.
In LibreOffice Writer 22.214.171.124
Click on File, New, Text Document
A new screen header "Untitled 4 - LibreOffice Writer appears.
A box, left-hand-most in 2nd row of icons says “Default Style” and to its right a box (the font box) says Liberation Serif and next box (the size box) says 12 for 12 point.
Click on the down arrow in that box. Drop-down list shows a variety of styles - Text Body, Title, etc.
Click on Text Body, click in the font box, choose, say, Georgia and size 11. Start typing.
Text is now 11pt Georgia as selected.
Hit Enter for a new line. In style box choose “Title”, then, say, Limelight and set size to 18. Start typing New text is 18 pt Limelight as selected. Hit enter for new line
Style box now shows “Text Body” but font is still Limelight, size is 12 (Not 11 as chosen for Georgio text body)
I would expect “Text Body” to remain at the last setting, i.e.Georgia 11 point. But now if I click on the style box and select “Text Body” it changes the font back to Liberation Serif, 12 point.
Similarly, if I choose “Title” after entering some body text I get the Liberation Sans font, not the Limelight I first set up.
So how do I set up Writer so that once having set a font-size combination for a particular style, I will always get that combination all the way through the document for that style?
I think that if I can fix this problem, then the problems I have with creating a template, which are similar, may also be solved.
