   Thank you. Selecting the text to be acted upon is what I do with LaTeX/LyX
and OO.o, but that did not occur to me for one reason. My reading of the
tutorials and manual led me to believe that each text frame has a particular
purpose (headline, subhead, body text, drop cap, etc.). Since the contents
are single-purpose, any attribute changes should automatically apply to the
text in the box.

   I see now that this is not the case, but it's not an unreasonable
assumption for a newcomer to the application.

All fixed,
