Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Styles Hack: Importing a Template With Completely Different Style Names, in OpenOffice Writer:

Isnt it possible to search and replace styles, in order to automatize the process for people who would otherwise have to reapply non-renamable styles they have used in their documents?

Hi Felipe,

Thank you SO much for bringing this up! In my excitement to hack I sometimes overlook the standard features like the Styles checkbox in the S/R box.

Click the More Options button in the S/R window and you can select your styles.

Cripes! Thanks for reminding me of this. I am soooo blogging this.

You can also -- and I should have included this in the blog -- put your files together in a master file, then have files with the same names in the master file but defined differently. The definitions in the master file override the definitions in the documents.

good
