Hi Harrison,

Scribus 1.3.4 supports "named styles" and "direct formatting" for both
charcaters and paragraphs.
If present, direct formatting overrides the attributes from the named style
and the named style is adorned with a "+" to show there's more. 

Currently, the only way to get rid of direct formatting is to use the "style
sweeper" buttons in properties palette. They are located next to the combo
boxes for the named styles.

Since hierarchical styles are new to 1.3.4, any old documents and imported
ODT documents will have a lot of direct formatting, so it will be necessary
to use the style sweeper before editing those.
