I just noticed in the template that the MapKeyHeading is in all caps but isn't bolded. I could've sworn it's always been bolded in all files I've worked on; is unbloded indeed the intended/correct way?

MapKeyHeading should be bold.

My more recent documents tend to use the name RoomHeading but I haven't decided which I like better.

Yunkers: Human Magic-User 6, AC 11, #At 1, Dam 1d3, Mv 40', Ml 9, XP 555

I don't like the race/class/level in parens; I'd rather have it be as shown above. I'm revising R32 to this standard, but we'll have to review it to make sure I haven't missed any.
Note for myself to add/revise for next release.

Ok, I need help understanding column formatting. I tried to use the template to create a new adventure by first wanting to insert a page for a map image (which I think should be included in the template anyways). So, I went to the end of the adventure, clicked on Insert > Manual Break > Page Break (with the "Maps" page style selected). It inserted the new page, and the header at the top was correct, but the page was still 2-column, and nothing I did would change it.

So, on the right side in LibreOffice I went to Style & Formatting, then selected Page Styles. I right-clicked on Maps and clicked Modify, and verified that it's set to 1-column there. On a hunch, I then right-clicked on Adventure Key and it says 1-column as well!

So how should it be done? And are we formatting columns manually and not through the page styles, which seems to be the "correct way"?

Switching column formats requires a new section if I remember correctly.

Ok so I repeated my steps, and then on the Maps page I inserted a new section that was single-column. Then I was able to delete the 2-column section above it, and from there insert a map image. But I shouldn't have to do this, right? It still seems like it's not honoring the column formatting set by the page style. Also, as you can see in my attached example the header at the top is also not aligning to the right side as well.
