I have a chunk of text that has style "JBody" (custom). However JBody is defined with Times New Roman, and the text is using Arial. When I select the text and click JBody (again) -- nothing happens.

How can I tell OO to ignore overrides and just use the actual definition of the style? How can I apply this to the entire document to make sure no text is outside of the style that it's told to be?

This question came from our site for Ubuntu users and developers.

I'd be glad if someone could migrate it. I saw other questions about OO on unix.stackexchange. Overall not sure where it fits best – Mikhail Dec 14 '11 at 15:55

I suppose you're searching the Default Formatting functionality. It's the first entry in the Format menu.

Just select the complete content (CTRL+A) and hit CTRL+M to restore default style-defined formats.

Was not aware of this, and never saw it while looking! Life saver :) – Mikhail Dec 14 '11 at 20:39
