> Rizal, Andreas: one for you.
Which one? I think this is related to code, not merely icon design.
On pc Debian x86-64 with master sources updated today + gtk3 rendering, after having enabled "List styles", the icon doesn't appear on formatting styles toolbar.
List styles command was never implemented (Bug 107000), and the current "Formatting (Styles)" toolbar seems to be just a prototype, showing how such toolbar should look like. So it has paragraph styles item as a placeholder for a future list styles control. Same thing for character styles (Bug 130260).
The toolbar xml has clear comments, indicating that it isn't supposed to work for character/list styles in its current state:

Thanks for clarification. Do you think we should set visibility to false, as it likely was done in the first place.

Visibility is false, but it still listed in the customization dialog as unchecked, and users getting there might try to enable it. If we consider this as a problem, we'll have to remove these command completely from the toolbar xml for now.
Hm, yeah, the idea from Jay and me of these items was to have placeholders to not forget these commands as part of this style formatting toolbar. Removing them completely brings the risk to forget them in the future (as they are forgotten now in the Customize dialog).

tdf#106781 Style-focused formatting toolbar for writer
It's been disabled since more than 2 years.
So 3 questions:
1) Is it really useful?
2) Does someone want to do the job ?
3) in what delay?
I mean, it's a problem for the moment since some people submit bugs about it (and I can understand).
This part could be removed temporarily (more precisely until someone finishes the job), it wouldn't be lost since it'll be in git history.
