[The UI is confusing :( ]

How it works: Open Tool > Outline (LO 6: Chapter) numbering. Make all your
settings. Click on button "Format". It has the item "Save as". Enter a name for
this chapter numbering. You will get a file "chapter.cfg" in your user
directory in subfolder "config". For the other document go to Open Tool >
Outline numbering as click on button "Format". You should see an item with your
naming. Click it. That will transfer the outline-level-style to the other

I don't know, why this had been labeled "Format".

The file chapter.cfg is transportable, in case you have two different user

The file chapter.cfg contains the node "<text:outline-style>" which is located
in the folder styles.xml in a packed odt document file. It does not contain,
which paragraph style is set on each level.

I don't know, whether these steps can be done by a macro.
