On my latest overnight it works as you say. Must
have been some flaw in my technique. Or a bad
compile somehow.

I am once again happy with 1.5.0. But I will
finish my current project with 1.4.5.

The only thing I mourn is the loss of access to
the Style Editor directly from the Story Editor.
But that boat sailed long ago.
