I am creating new header styles in OpenOffice (for example My Header 1, etc...), but where are these custom styles saved? Is it in the document or the application? If I open my document on another pc, will these styles still apply?

After performing a couple of tests, it seems like custom styles are saved in documents. If you want to create a document with custom styles, you need to make a copy of an existing one.

Or rather create a new template based on the document and use it for future docs. – Glutanimate Sep 24 '13 at 17:46
