Hi, Greg,

I've snipped everything previous to your reply.

I got the general meaning of what he was saying.

Got it.  I've got the 1.5.1 icon set.

I think you guys solved the problem I was having.

I'm redoing a few 1-2 page computer info docs that I originally created 
in Libre Office.

I had to get on with things so I manually formatted the doc that was 
causing me the problems.

I've now imported another LO file into a new doc.  The first thing I did 
was select all the text in the frame and applied the trash can icon. 
Bingo!!!  Some minor changes to the doc, which told me I had stripped 
some existing formatting.

AIUI, I should be able to import LO formatting with no problems, 
correct?  The existing docs do not have consistent formatting across all 
the original docs.

Now, as I write this, everything seems to be working as I expected. 
I'll be working with other features of the Styles Manager to learn how 
the other features work.

I've got a simple (I hope) styles question for a new thread.

Thanks for the help.
