Hi, I'd like to see the "ok" button in the style catalog dialog called "apply". reasons: (1) Everything is ok as far as you use the style catalog to select a new style of your actual paragraph. In this case you keep in mind that clicking "ok" would change the style of the selected paragraph. (2) But if you use the style catalog to *modify" paragraph's styles (especially if you modify styles which you *just* *want* *to* *modify* *but* *not* *apply* to the current selected paragraph -> then clicking "ok" is wrong but "close" is the right choice (since you don't want to apply the modified style to the selected paragraph). Few people will in this case keep in mind the difference between "ok" and "close". So please, rename the "ok" button "apply" which is a better choise even in case 1 (see above). Thanks

There are several other requests for "Apply" buttons dating back to 2001. I'm posting this message in all of them. Does anyone know an effective way to join them, to add the votes, to raise visibility with developers ? These are found looking for the word "Apply" in the subject: 2374 (ui) add Apply button in Options to avoid having to re-drill down 10173 (Drawing) Apply button to dialogs 15582 (Word processor) Implement 'Apply changes' option 24443 (Word processor) change button name of style catalog: ok -> apply 45396 (framework) "Apply" button in "Appearance" box 51333 (framework) Add "Apply" button to dialogs "Tools-Options" and "Tools-Customize" 67133 (framework) apply button in options tab 67848 (Chart) add a button 'Apply' on the dialog 'Object Properties' In the meantime, I hope you'd consider voting for all of them. Thanks, Edgardo.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on my owner to the owner "requirements".
