Description Ganton 2015-12-15 13:30:34 UTC
The ["Use Styles From Another File" feature](https://help.libreoffice.org/Writer/Using_Styles_From_Another_Document_or_Template) doesn't work if the other file is a .fodt one: in order to use its styles you can't choose that file because only .odt and similar are shown, and if you type the path of that file, the dialog of Libreoffice gets closed and you end up wondering what has happened.

The bug is still present in Libreoffice 6.2.3.2. That doesn't happen: "the dialog of Libreoffice gets closed and you end up wondering what has happened"... but the  main part of the bug still happens.
