it may be a good idea... but also a horrible one...

on the one side it's nice to be 100% free in our actions, on the other side i fear that we need some control on which formatting make it in the style definition and we probably also need an overview and fine tweaking.

but the idea is not bad at all:

- right click on a paragraph and define a paragraph from its formatting

- right click on the paragraph and get a list of the differences against the current style. you can accept or reject each of them and patch the paragraph style

- open the style dialog and you can check and fine tune it

- this should be true for each type of style (char, line, frame, ...)

- each style editor is a separate window (no style manager anymore!)

let's have a dream...
