Thanks heaps!

I fully agree. Actually, I sent a suggestion like this to all developers and some interested guys some time ago. Please find them attached to this email.

Note that SM-small is the equivalent of the Quick Palette. It's only purpose is to administer styles. To edit any style, a double-click on a style would be required, just like in OO.o (except that it still seems to be impossible to dock dialogs in 1.3.5+).
