Unable to alter the name of a built-in style
Last modified: 2008-09-09 05:37:24 EDT
Description of problem:
I am unable to alter the name of a style within a document
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Write some text and alter the margins
2. Right click on the text and select edit paragraph style
3. Try and give the new style a different name other than default
The name can be highlighted, but the textbox is not editable.
I should be able to change the name
Hit F1 for help and you get "Name: Displays the name of the selected style. If you are creating or modifying a custom style, enter a name for the style. You cannot change the name of a predefined style."
So its not "broken" per-se, but working as documented. You can use "new style from selection" and change an existing style to take the properties of the custom paragraph you've created, or create a new style with a new name. The name of such a new style *can* be changed, but the built-in style names can't.
