Yes, I was noticing this myself as I was working on documentation for 
Lines and Line Styles.
Also, there is only one Custom style when can exist at any one time.

There is quite an array of predefined styles, maybe even too many. It 
might make more sense to have fewer of these, then allow for a number of 
customized styles, maybe even starting with one of the predefined, 
editing it, then saving as a custom style with a name.

Meanwhile, I'll have a look at how this is coded in the SLA files. Maybe 
there is some trick that could be used.
