Loading styles from a template or document

You can copy styles by loading them from a template or another document:

  1. Open the document you want to copy styles into.
  2. In the Styles and Formatting window, long-click on the arrow next to the New Style from Selection icon, and then click on Load Styles.
  3. On the Load Styles dialog, find and select the template you want to copy styles from.
  4. Select the categories of styles to be copied. Select Overwrite if you want the styles being copied to replace any styles of the same names in the document you’re copying them into.
  5. Click OK to copy the styles. You will not see any change on screen.

Copying styles from a template into the open document
Image:documentation_caution.png If your document has a table of contents, and if you have used custom styles for headings, the heading levels associated with outline levels (in Tools > Outline Numbering) will have reverted to the defaults of Heading 1, Heading 2, and so on. You will need to change these back to your custom heading styles. This is a bug.
