Try Edit->Styles to do what you used to do while in the Story Editor.  I
understand there is a reason for changing this, but the logic is lost on me.
 It's a bit like having to make at least two clicks to close or update the
Text Frame from the Story Editor.  I like 1.3.9, but there are a few things
I miss from  Maybe as I get more familiar with the finer points of
Scribus, I will appreciate these changes.
