I just tested that claim and it's false. I did the normal thing - opened
format | paragraph and changed the indent. When I was finished writing
with that indent, I did the same thing only removing the extra indent.

Not true! You can't even modify an indent without messing with styles.
Drove me crazy!

OK, but you can set up a UNIX virtual machine. Worst case would be
needing qemu to emulate whatever processor your WP51 version was
set up for.
Who said anything about running windows?
The only windows I have are made of glass lol.
Although a virtual dos machine might be interesting if I find
anything over much to do with Linux.
Thanks for the giggle,
Still don't know what you have against LibreOffice. It's almost
certainly superior to WP51 in every significant way.
At least she doesn't have to worry about "Styles."
Funny but I never had to learn about styles. However they are handier
than applying individual attributes to common elements. And while
LibreOffice is quite powerful, it's not Scribus nor Scribus-like by
any stretch. It's just a modern, feature-rich word processor. That
means allowing people to use styles when they want to or ignoring
them when they don't.
