Deleting styles

It is not possible to delete OOo’s predefined styles from a document or template, even if they are not in use. However, custom styles can be deleted.

To delete an unwanted style, right-click on it in the Styles and Formatting window and choose Delete. If the style is in use, the message shown in Figure 198 appears.



Make sure the style is not in use before deletion. Otherwise, all objects with that style will return to the default style and retain their formatting as manual formatting. This can be very problematic in a long document


If an unwanted style is in use, use Find & Replace to replace it with a substitute style before deleting it.

If the style is not in use, the message shown in Figure 199 appears.
