That's what I'd been doing, but there were several different
documents to be imported (to go into different boxes), all
using the same OpenOffice styles and all needing to use
a corresponding (but different) Scribus style. What I did
in the end was to import without style information, change
the style for the text box to the main (paragraph) style
and then manually change the style for any paragraphs
that were different.
