1. Styles Window (e.g., F11)
2. Open any paragraph or character style
3. Change a value in any tab, press Apply
4. Press Reset
the change is applied.
reset has no effect
change is applied
reset undoes the changed value
1. If changes are not applied, then Reset does return the values to when the dialog was opened.
In other words, the dialog box is able to keep information about the "previous state", but "forgets" after Apply. Should forget after "Ok"
2. Advantage with change: with "apply" can see effect directly in document, not just in "preview" window, where "reset" should allow one to come back to "state when dialog box was opened" (which is also what the "help" pages say) -- so maybe this is a "bug" and not an enhancement (as currently filed)
Tested in 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206.alpha
According to the help (https://help.libreoffice.org/7.0/en-US/text/shared/01/05020200.html)
Resets changes made to the current tab to those applicable when this dialog was opened.
Applies the modified or selected values without closing the dialog.
Point is that Reset works only until Apply has been pressed. This is definitely not expected by the user nor desirable.
I wonder if this ticket is really new- QA experts will find the duplicate.
For now we could add a note to the help, although Reset/Apply/Standard is likely spread over many pages.
1. The request here is just for the "Paragraph Styles" dialog:
2. I recognize that modifying the "reset" button can have effects beyond "Paragraph style".

3. One patch (for LOK) seems to believe that "Cancel" can be used instead of "Reset" -- but this is true only if "Apply" has not been used.
