You can select areas of text there too and choose in the top toolbar.

Styles are not shown in the Story Editor. Its purely an editor.

Not currently possible. We have inline objects in progress but theres no 
control for this stuff. Placing an image in an image frame and either editing 
the frame or using the contour line works very easily for this though.

We know.. work in progress, but the time really depends on the document and 
the PC.

Which bold would you select from a font that you may have installed that 
includes bold, semibold, extra bold, heavy, ultrabold, medium? Same for 
italics and widths. We do have future plans for making this easier, but you 
see the issue with regards to multiple levels of boldness etc.

Not at this point. Please put in a request for this one.

BTW, what version of Scribus is this for?
