[Solved] Templates and default paragraph style

Postby cobbhen » Fri Sep 07, 2018 10:40 pm

When you create a template, does the modified default paragraph style get stored as part of a template? If not, is there any way to modify the default paragraph template so that it is retained from one session to the next?

Note that while the default paragraph style is part of every template, and modifications to that style will be retained within the template, the now modified template will not automatically be the default template (for new documents). This is different from MS Word, where you have the "Normal" template at the outset and can configure style changes in your document to propagate to styles in the template file.

In Writer, defaults are mostly hardcoded (AFAIK) and to some degree configurable from "Tools - Options". To make new defaults for paragraph styles, you need to make your own template file, and register that as the default template. This is the only way to change many of the predefined defaults.

Find guidance here.
