We have some functions in the header area of the PS: fill mode, new from selection/template etc. After moving the CS list into a shared Text Styles view we don't have these controls for CS.
I suggest to make all available in a context menu (which also cleans up the header). It's a bit ugly since we select a style per right click and showing then "new from selection" might read as this style will be overwritten. But the alternative to duplicate the header is worse.
Could also imagine to kill the fill-mode and to have submenus in the hamburger for PS and CS.

I suppose, you're talking about the sidebar. I don't understand the problem. In styles tab we have "Fill format Mode" and - in a dropdown menu - "News Style from Selection", "Update Selected Style" and "Load Styles from Template". This is independent from choosing "Character Styles" or "Paragraph Styles". Sorry, but could you please specify the problem?
Or is this not an actual problem, but a problem that would become actual, if we follow bug 143987?
This ticket is about the "text styles" tab of the Stylist deck that is in preparation (expected the patch  to be implemented sooner). Point is that we move PS and CS into one view. And by doing so we cannot show the interactive elements on both without totally cluttering the UI. The proposed patch has no interactions for CS and this ticket is a reminder to re-implement something, ideally a context menu.
Thanks for explanation. So perhaps i will have a look at it, if stylist deck is available in master.
Mike, do we want to keep these tickets around the Text Styles plan for the stylist or WF/INV for now?

Possibly better to close, and to have new when (if?) the work resumes on the main problem.
Should be done to finish bug 143987.
