1.3.5 rc3, Jaunty x86_64

Apparently character styles are a feature new to 1.3.5.

I created a new document, then created a text frame, opened Story
Editor, then created a character style. All appeared well.

Then I added some text to the frame by copying and pasting into Story
Editor. I selected a word and attempted to apply my shiny new character
style. No luck. The character style does not appear in the style
drop-down box.

>From past experience with *paragraph* styles, a newly created style
does no appear until the Story Editor is closed and reopened. I did so,
but my new character style still does not appear in the style drop-down

I can't find anything in the wiki about this. Where did my new style
go? How do I apply it to selected text?
