Example file from Excel with a beautiful custom style
Excel has a feature for importing (custom) cell styles from another spreadsheet. It might be useful to have a similar feature in Calc too, since Writer already has.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a custom cell style in Excel, save the file.
2. Open a new spreadsheet and go to Cell Stlyes – Merge Styles.
3. Select the previously created file to import the custom style.
No similar feature in Calc.
Style import dialog similar to Writers Styles -> Load Styles dialog.
Currently it is only possible to save a template with custom styles and then use that for new spreadsheets.
Idea is that transferring nice styles from one file to another can be useful in one-off scenarios.

Confirm it is missing some import option.

Good idea, maybe via extension similar to https://extensions.libreoffice.org/en/extensions/show/custom-palette-eport.
Fwiw, copying a cell that has a style assigned to another document copies that style along.
