This is a screenshot showing me selecting the style from the formatting toolbar but to no avail. This no longer applies styles.
I just upgraded to 22.214.171.124. In the previous version of LibreOffice Writer, I could apply a style to some text by selecting the text and then using the dropdown menu on the formatting toolbar and selecting the style I wanted to apply. As of 126.96.36.199, that no longer works.
I can still apply styles from the sidebar by highlighting the text and selecting the style on the sidebar. But the dropdown option on the formatting toolbar no longer applies styles to text in LibreOffice Writer.
I write a lot, almost exclusively in LibreOffice Writer. And I use styles all the time. This is going to cause me a lot of problems even with the workaround.
Not reproducible for me with
Version: 188.8.131.52.0+ / LibreOffice Community
Build ID: 168065841250c190808261cf65afa00f9ecd52e7
CPU threads: 8; OS: Linux 5.11; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3
Locale: fr-FR (fr_FR.UTF-8); UI: fr-FR
Note: it is not necessary to select the text you want apply a paragraph style to. It is enough to set the cursor in this paragraph.

Thank you. Please could you try with the generic backend (instead of kf5). In a terminal, use the following command to start LibreOffice:

The dropdown option from the toolbar worked when I loaded LibreOffice that way.
Does that mean the bug is with KDE?

Indeed. I changed the summary accordingly.

How did you install 184.108.40.206 ?
I mean LO ppa doesn't contain 220.127.116.11.
If you use snap, you should contact them.
If you download deb files from tdf, have in mind that deb and rpm are more for repository maintainers since they check required dependencies.
I'm using a pre-release PPA:
Given the problems I'm running into, I'm probably going to change to the version in the Kubuntu repositories. All sorts of problems are occurring with 18.104.22.168 - menus aren't working at all.
It fails with qt5 and kde5 using the install packages from the LO archives and from a custom compiled version. I would consider 7.2.1 not to be ready for release, as this is IMO a rather major bug.
See also bug 144485 that may be related.
You should contact Ubuntu since they, not TDF, provide packages from PPA.
Could confirm the buggy behavior with
Version: 22.214.171.124 / LibreOffice Community
Build ID: 87b77fad49947c1441b67c559c339af8f3517e22
CPU threads: 6; OS: Linux 5.3; UI render: default; VCL: kf5 (cairo+xcb)
Locale: de-DE (de_DE.UTF-8); UI: de-DE
There are more than only the styles which can't be set right with LO 126.96.36.199 and VCL: kf5.
Do this with kf5:
Switch the color of text by choosing any color of the opened dialog.
Switching doesn't work.
Only setting color to the default red color for fonts will work. Switching back is impossible.
This buggy behavior isn't shown with LO 188.8.131.52.
And there are many more buttons with the same bug: Trying to input a table by button won't work, Trying to set the background color won't work …
On pc Debian x86-64 with master sources updated today + kf5 rendering, I don't reproduce this.
Caolán: I noticed this on console
warn:legacy.osl:41864:41864:svl/source/items/custritm.cxx:70: CntUnencodedStringItem::PutValue(): Wrong type
warn:sfx:41864:41864:sfx2/source/appl/appuno.cxx:310: Property not convertible: Color
could it be related with tdf#144464 ?
Michael/Jan-Marek: since it seems specific to kf5, thought you might be interested in this one.

That warning is tdf#144464, but that's not having an effect on this popup related problem which might be related to tdf#144037. Popup windows are always bizarrely difficult to get working right in all circumstances.

Yes, that's tdf#144037, which is fixed in LibreOffice 7.2.2 (and 7.3).
