User documentation.
For various reasons, the people that write it, have felt treated like the red-haired step-child.

Currently, most of the LibO user guides apply to AOo, but there are some blatent discrepencies.
Over time, I expect these to become uncrossible chasms.

The fundamental issue is not that using styles is difficult, or awkward.
Rather, it is simply is not part of the curriculum, when teaching people how to use an office
