[scribus] Inline editing character controls in your face

Apologies if this has been suggested anywhere already.

Would it be possible to have a dockable toolbar type sort of thing which 
appears when you are doing inline text editing. This toolbar 
should/could have all the sort of controls that appear in the story 
editor toolbar.
e.g. font picker, alignment controls, underline.
Also to appease some could (optionally?) a bold and italic button be 
(even if it then has to auto update the font appropriately?)

Also out of curiousity why is it that some ttf fonts have a single file 
and in Word/Publisher you can still make bold or italic, but in scribus 
it appears you can not. You only can do it if there are separate font 
files (with bold or italic in name) ?

Is this the right place to make suggestions, or should it be lodged 
somehow somewhere else ?
