[Scribus] Possibilities for markup / "soft formatting" / Character Styles

Dear readers of this list,

in writing documentations you often have typographical conventions such as 
"Program names all italic".
While it is possible in Scribus to change all headings for example at once by 
editing the corresponding paragraph style I have not found a way to change 
words or groups of words within paragraphs efficiently (something like the 
Character Styles in InDesign or Markup in LaTeX).
So if you started with all program names italic and later get the instruction 
"All program names not italic but any other style" then the lack of 
possibilities for "soft formatting" or markup of words or groups of words 
within paragraphs in Scribus means  a lot of work.
Is a solution for this problem on the Scribus roadmap, or does it already 
exist with me just not seeing it?

Yours sincerely
