Created attachment 81078 [details]
File with a style I can not rename.

Problem description: 
Renaming a userdefined style does not work.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a document.
2. Draw a line.
3. Create a style "UserDefinedStyle" based on the style assigned by default to the line.
4. Change some properties.
5. Assing this new style to the line
6. Rename it - e.g. to "UserDefinedStype3"
=> Works
7. Save an close the file.
8. Reload the file
9. Rename the style to "UserDefinedStyle4"
10. Save, close and reload
=> Still the old style name.

Current behavior:
=> Style rename does not work once the file with the style has been saved.
Expected behavior:
=> rename should work.
Operating System: All
Version: release

Hi aw,
thanks for reporting.
Did you mention "template" for some special reason in the summary?

Curently I test in 404 (LOL 4.0.4 ;) ) - should be checked when the problem was introduced.
Best - Cor

No - I run a german version - I do not know what is the right translation and use style/tempalate.

apparently last working version was ... wait a minute, this
is broken in every version back to OOo 3.0.1, why was this
tagged "regression"?

Hi Michael,

> why was this tagged "regression"?

Could be that I made a mistake. (Possibly because I have the idea that I use it now and then with success ;) )

** Please read this message in its entirety before responding **

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

   *Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice (4.4.1 or later)

   *If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior
   *If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a short comment that includes your version of LibreOffice and Operating System

Please DO NOT

   *Update the version field
   *Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
   *Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so: 

1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3)

2. Test your bug 
3. Leave a comment with your results. 
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to "inherited from OOo"; 
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add "regression" to keyword

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat:

Thank you for your help!
