Description cppm 2007-02-25 22:16:22 UTC
ATM if you create a document and later want to updtate the formatting to a new 
template, you either copy and paste the entire document into a fresh document 
made by the template, or you apply the template by 'importing styles' 

now the first method is inconvenient, especially if you have some important 
fields and setup details, such as finely arranged picturing that may get 
trashed by the copy and paste process, or a linked in database, or a document 

The second method means you are condemned to update the styles manually every 
time the template changes, instead of them being updated automagically as they 
should be, this is inconvenient for people like me who have a base of documents 
all formatted to a select set of templates which I may suddenly decide to 
change at some point.

The simplest solution would be to allow the user to refresh the template, thus 
load in all the styles and get the documents 'template' property to point to 
the new template.

I would do this myself, but ATM i'm just a user, and have no experience with OO
