Screen shot of Styles window in Spreadsheet, Writer
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.
I've been seeing this from version 4.2.4 as far as I can Remeber.

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 ..)
