[Scribus] Font change requestor

I've just started using 1.2 and I must say that I've been fairly impressed 
with it so far.  My one frustration is that there isn't a button to click for 
bold or italic font face.  Other apps (DTPs and word processors) have these 
buttons and just list the typeface.  Is there a reason that Scribus does it 
this way?  Any plans to change in the future?

It just seems like you'd shoot for a UI that is close to what users are used 
to seeing elsewhere.

Just my $.02.
