Description caolanm 2009-05-27 10:20:51 UTC
So, if some content in a source document is in a particular style (say numbered
with a list style X) and pasted into a destination document which has a style of
the same name then we (quite rightly) leave the destination document style alone.
We set the new content to be of the style X, but if the destination style is of
different formatting then we have to ability to retain the formatting of the
original if we so wish.

I can't see a feature request for something like an optional "keep source
formatting" in paste special or anything like that, but this must have come up

A sample .odt to paste from and paste into to show the situation where this is
most painful

Could be for the colliding styles case of:
a) "use dest style and add direct formatting diff to source style" or 
b) "create a new style and use it"
a sounds neater.
