Hello list,
I like the new possibilty in 1.3 to have bold etc. in an extra pulldown. But 
generally I think a little bit about usability and would like to discuss this on the 
list here.
Regarding selection of styles:
Wouldn't it be more easy to have all the styles listed in one window (like 
paragraph-styles in Openoffice)? So to select on you need only one click in 
spite of 3 mouseclicks (Select Dropdownbox, scroll, select; ok, worst case). 
Maybe it is good to have it how it is now, but to open an extra tool-window 
parallel to the current, only with the styles
You should have the possibility for a shorcut to focus the style-window if open 
or the style-box and then type the first letter of the style (works already)

Its very nice that bold/italics is now implemented as an extra dropdown. But it 
would be nice to have as shortcut to them.
They also don't appear in the StoryEditor.

These are only short suggestions to improve the working, generally I think the 
speed of improvements is amazing, you are doing a very good job. But I think 
one important point for the future is to have the many feature as easy as 
possible to use. 

With best regards,
Ralf-Diether Ebel
