Description calestyo 2010-08-11 14:48:44 UTC
In impress, when changing the defaults styles (Default, Text, Text body, etc.)
so that they're linked and inherit properties from their parents.... any "links"
are forgotten as soon as the file is saved/loaded again.

This is _similar_ to issue #106642.

#106642 speaks just about when opening in different clients, while here it
happens even in the same one...

Ok, please give a step by step description for reproducing this.

1) Create a new (empty) presentation.
2) You'll see a number of styles
3) Change to the "Styles for formatting graphical elements, including text objects."
4) Choose "Hierarchical" display in the styles navigator.
5) Select e.g. the style "Title 1" and chose "Modify" in the context-menu.
6) Select the "Organizer" tab.
7) Set "Linked with" to e.g. "Title".
8) Now you should see that "Title 1" is a sub-style of "Title".
9) Save the document. Close it. Reopen it (in ooimpress).
10) The specified inheritance is lost, an "Title 1" is again linked with "Default".

Try this:
1- in a ODG document, create a shape
2- call the stylist (F5) and create a dedicated style for this shape (change
background color)
3- copy this shape
4- open a new ODG document
5- paste the shape
Actual result: the dedicated style is lost and the shape is set to the default
Expected result: the shape is pasted with same characteristics and the style
appears in the stylist.

Is this the same problem?

oooforum, no. This issue is about setting another parent style to pre defined
styles. Please submitt a new issue for your problem

This issue is fixed in cws impress201 for OOo 3.4

Problem was that the API did not allow change of parent style and style name for
predefined styles. I removed this limitation as it does not make any sense.
