Re:Word wins hands down in Styles

And on the UI front, Word puts the stylist in a sidebar panel that can't obstruct your view of your main document.


In OOo, you can 'dock' your stylist (and just about any other popup window). Hold down the Ctrl key while you drag the stylist window into the approximate location where you would expect it to dock. You should see it snap into place. Let go of the mouse button, *then* the Ctrl key.


I don't know how the OOo team could have made the existence of the feature obvious (except in the "Did you know..." tips on startup, and even then you would have to read through all the tips). It's just one of the Tips and Tricks that you have to discover.
