[Solved] How to "redress" a document in another template?

Postby digisus » Thu Feb 07, 2008 3:23 pm

Hello
In earlier versions of Writer, it was possible to have a doument that was written using a template A redone in another template B with only a few (2-3) clicks. I searched the menus for half an hour but was not able to find that function again. Does anybody know where it is hiding? :?

Thanks a lot!

Try this. Open your document, press F11 to open the Stylist, click the rightmost icon and select Load Styles, select the template B file, check all boxes and OK out.

And after importing the template B styles, you might have to expect to apply (or find and replace) styles that didn't exist in template A.

That extension seems interesting also: Template Changer.

Thanks to add '[Solved]' in your first post title (edit button) if your issue has been fixed.
