After importing my 300 page book from MS Word to LibreOffice, I looked extensively in the menu system, in the help docs, and on the Internet to resolve my magically changing styles problem, all to no avail. LibreOffice is just fine if you don't use styles, but who would not use styles when working with a large document? Working with LibreOffice reminds me of programming with gotos: It's easy and obvious, but as the things scale, at a certain point it collapses under its own weight.
