Description Thomas Lendo 2017-03-30 21:54:08 UTC
When searching with the Find & Replace dialog, it should be possible to assign a certain paragraph style to a found paragraph. Existing direct paragraph formatting should be replaced completely by the style.

In combination with a paragraph formatting search feature, a user could search for certain paragraphs (e.g. with 5 cm indent and 10 % pattern) and replace their manual formatting with a paragraph style.

A workaround:

1. Using the dialog's Find All, have all the required paragraphs selected;
2. Apply the wanted style double-clicking the necessary style in the sidebar.
