Screen shot of Styles window in Spreadsheet, Writer

https://help.libreoffice.org/Writer/Using_Styles_From_Another_Document_or_Template

The above document describes the way to use styles from another file / template.

What I am trying to do:-

I want to setup a Spreadsheet Template for my entire office. In that file I want to add all the common styles used in our office. So, the styles in template, will be available for all the employees in all spreadsheets.

According to the document, I have to click on the arrow next to the "New Style from Selection" icon in the Styles and Formatting window. But, I find that there is no such arrow beside the icon.

So, re-using styles is not possible in Spreadsheets.

I've checked in LO Writer. I can find the arrow beside the "New Style from Selection" icon. 

So, reusing styles in writer is possible, but it is not possible in Spreadsheets (Calc).

I think it is just an omission and not intentionally planned.

Indeed. 
You can circumvent that limitation by copying cells with the wanted styles to the target document. Ah yes, a but clumsy ;)

Why do you think so :)

Let's set this as enhancement. (And prolly there is a similar issue already ..)

Regards,
