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.
