Only one hint for this: My first MasterDocument was the Master for the
German Base Handbook. First I had a little bit problems with styles,
which are named the same way, but were defined different in the
separate *.odt-files. After correcting these ther doesn't appear
problems any more.
When editing a new version of Handbook, I only change the link in my
filesystem to the special new folder and the new content will be read
by the master. If have done this for 9 different versions of the
Handbook, also without any problems and in a very short time.
The problem for many users: Writer and all other programs for editing
a normal text have too much functions and too much styles. I remember
my fist little dtp-program, called Timeworks Publisher: Only 4 styles
were defined for the whole document for headers and content. Everybody
knew, which style he/she had to choose for different tasks. Works.
With Writer I have to learn: Less is more.
