rst2odt_prepstyles FILE


rst2odt(1) uses a stylesheet file as a template for the ODT files it creates. The stock styles.odt file shipped with it comes without page dimensions. When rst2odt is run and detects that there no paper size is given in the stylesheet, it is automatically determined using paperconf(1).

When editing stylesheets with Writer (or similar programs), the resulting files always carry a page size. rst2odt respects this setting and ensures that documents processed with custom stylesheets look the same regardless of the host it is running on. If you want to get the original behavior, i.e. a system-dependent paper size, you can run rst2odt_prepstyles over your custom stylesheet. Remember to re-run the command whenever you change the file with a word processor.
