Changing multiple page styles simultaneously?

Postby Baylink » Fri Jan 30, 2015 7:58 pm

I see that I can delete a page style from the Styles palette, and it will be converted to Default on any pages which use it.

Alas, I don't seem to be able to multiple-select in that rollup (RFE: that's a bug), and I have a document where each page is styled Converted2, Converted4, Converted6, etc, *all the way through a 195 page document*. Hopefully it's obvious why I don't want to manually delete each of those.

Is there a better way to force all pages of the document to Default, so I can manually restart my styling work?

Is it a 'MS Office monster'? :-)

I think: there is no other way... You must push the Delete key 195 times.
And always work in the standardized, native ODF formats.

Or use this macro: Delete custom styles.

To install, just select the whole code and paste it in a new module. See also: Tutorial: How to install a code snippet.

Please add [Solved] at the beginning of the title in your first post (top of the topic) with the edit button if your issue has been fixed.
