The separations of various settings for Paragraph and Character styles 
may make some sense, but since a Character style is a subset of a 
Paragraph style, you should be able to see all these settings when you 
work with a Paragraph style, rather than needing to jump between tabs in 
the dialog. Maybe the answer might an expanded or unexpanded sort of layout.
