OpenOffice 3.x Getting Started Guide

At times you might want to associate a document with a different template, or perhaps you’re working with a document that did not start from a template.

One of the major advantages of using templates is the ease of updating styles in more than one document, as described in Editing a template. If you update styles by loading a new set of styles from a different template (as described in Loading styles from a template or document), the document has no association with the template from which the styles were loaded—so you cannot use this method. What you need to do is associate the document with the different template.

You can do this in two ways. In both cases, for best results the names of styles should be the same in the existing document and the new template. If they are not, you will need to use Search and Replace to replace old styles with new ones. See Chapter 4 (Getting Started with Writer) for more about replacing styles using Search and Replace.
