This question is based on this thread.

I would like to apply Monaco -font to all header_1s in a master document in Open Office 3.

I have tried to change the Header 1 in Styles and Formatting unsuccessfully: I change the font to Monace and click ok, and then update 'All` in my master document, but the monaco font does not apply.

How can you apply Monaco -font to each heading in the master document?

If you want all the text that is styled Header 1 in the master document and the subdocuments to have the same style and to be updated together when you make a change, you need to make the change in the template. Changes that you make in the master document only apply to it.

See Page 10, Step 2 in Chapter 13 - Working with Master Documents and also Chapter 10 - Working with Templates.

My "Save" -link at "File > Templates > Save" is not active for some reason: --- Do you know why the link is not active? – Masi Jul 22 '09 at 13:24
On my Ubuntu system, OOo Writer has the File>Template>Save menu item grayed out for master documents but not regular ones. – Dennis Williamson Jul 22 '09 at 14:02

After setting up the pages, or before, edit the Styles and Formatting

(Menu > Format > Styles and Formatting or F11 ).

  1. Right-click Heading 1 and select Modify...
  2. Select the Font tab
  3. Select the font type, size and style as required
  4. Click OK

If it works, all Heading 1 elements of the document should update to the newly selected font style.

@echo: I agree with you. --- About 80% of my Heading 1 changes correctly, but 20% remains untouched: – Masi Jul 22 '09 at 18:27
Are the unaffected headings completely styled as Heading 1 and don't have some other style applied to the middle of the word? – random Jul 22 '09 at 22:35
