Hi,

this problem is driving me mad:

my first page has a style called "First Page", all the following pages have a style called "Default". I changed and tweaked the "Default" style to my liking a long time ago. Now the only thing I want is to change the first page's style from "First Page" to "Default". Surely this must be possible?

Of course. Assign the Default style to the first page. You should only use different page styles in a document if the pages need different formatting, like headers/footers, page orientation (portrait/landscape etc.).

With your cursor in the first page right click First Page on the status bar and click Default.

If all your new documents use First Page for that page then you need to edit your default template.

Oh. Thanks. I was all the time looking at menu > "Format" > "Page" and was expecting a drop-down menu there, similar to the "Next Style" drop-down.

Anyways, thanks again for the quick help!
