You can change them on the canvas and see the results. Changing them in 
the story editor will not display the results, though you can easily 
preview it by saving the text and seeing what happens in the text frame.

Sort of. The story editor is non-modal, so you can't see the changes in 
it, but you don't need to exit it to see them on the canvas.
