Hi,

just a thought: do you have an backup of your thesis from the day before the
problems occurred? If so, could you try to copy all the new stuff from the
current, problem-causing file to A COPY of that backup file?

You might also try to copy all content from your current thesis file to a new
file (and, in a 2nd step, after trying to export to PDF for a 1st time), import
the styles from the old thesis file to the new file, or redo them manually if
you didn't change much from the defaults.

Another thing might be doing diffs (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diff) over the
files inside the two versions of your thesis file. They are actually ZIP
archives you can unzip using an appropriate archiver program; and most of the
files inside the ODF ZIP archives are actually plain text/XML. If you do not
have a program for doing diffs on Mac, jEdit (http://jedit.org/; written in
Java and http://jedit.org/index.php?page=compatibility#macx) has an extension
(installable from inside the program once it is installed) for doing diffs
between files).

Kind regards

Andreas
