The SE code is *very* old and needs to be completely rewritten, and we currently don't have the human resources to work on it. If someone with experience in C++ and Qt wants to step in and do the work, it would be much appreciated.

As far as I understand John, he mentioned two different things: Calling 
the Style editor from the Text editor AND calling the Text editor 
directly from a text frame's context menu.

The latter should be easy to regain, shouldn't it?

I do not know the newer version and for my own part, I use the text 
editor icon rather than the context menu, but I agree the context menu 
item should be there just in case... :-)
