The left hand box has either 'no style' or the name of the style I've developed.  All the text is in the new styles in this box, but even though I click on the tick mark to update and return to main screen the main screen has none of the changes.

After two hours have managed to get one small text box with the right font, colour and text, but the other just refuses to update.  I've ended up with one line in miniscule print and the others in larger print, but the font isn't coming across at all even tho I'm using Ctrl A to highlight the whole page.
