Hello ladies and gentlemen !

I have several problems with Draw. The first one is a trouble with name changing.

1. I create a new style in LibreOffice Draw for my mindmap.
2. I change the style name that i created. For examle from "Default-1" to "Connector-1".
3. Save the file ".odg".
4. Reload the file. The style name steal "Default-1".

The same problem with changing of connectors type (i try to switch from Connector to Curved Connector).

Also, i have a problem with shortcut "repeat". I switch a combination from default to "Alt-A" and "Ctrl-A". I try this with enlgish, russian and german language.
In other applications this problem is not appear.

Please help ;)

Hi and welcome to the forum!

First, you should create a topic per issue, else the discussion gets confusing, especially when the problems are completely different as it is the case here.

In AOO 4.1.2, I created a new odg file, made a connector, created a new style by right-clicking the Default entry in the Navigator, called it "test", applied it on the connector. After save and reopen it has still the test style name.
It may be a bug from LibO.

First of all, i glad to see that you improved my issue !

Well, i have 3 problems. Do i have to create 3 separate topics ?

1). Name changing.
2). Changing of connectors type. (I try to switch and save option from Connector to Curved Connector just like in the issue about name changing. I want to change properties of elements just with one click. There are not troubles with changing of color, font, connector starts and ends).
3). A problem with shortcut "repeat".

It seems that the first issue may be a bug. How can we fix it ?

I have to add some extra information about the second issue.

This is the algorithm that you can use for repeating the issue.

1. I create a new connector for two objects.
2. Then, i create a new connectors style - "Connector - 1" and switch connectors type from default (blue line with right angle) to curve for this connector in the style menu (F11) that i selected.
2. Save the file with new style ".odg".
3. Reload.
4. LibreOffice show me that the type of connector in style properties is steel default but actually it's curve just like before i reloaded the file.
5. Then, i create default connector by using panel and apply my style for this one. Connectors type doesn't change for this new connector. There are not troubles with changing of color, font, connector starts and ends.
