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.
