Description Leonora Tindall 2023-03-31 20:20:30 UTC
I work with a publisher that extensively uses Microsoft Word. I am able to perfectly replicate their workflow in LibreOffice Writer with the single exception of the use of character styles, which are pretty annoying to use because I have to have the character styles open in the right-hand pane.

Character styles should be available in a dropdown (drop-down) menu which can be added to the toolbar, similarly to paragraph styles.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Tools -> Customize.
2. Select Toolbars tab.
3. Search for "character styles".

Actual Results:
There is no available toolbar component for character styles.

Expected Results:
There should be a toolbar component similar to the paragraph styles dropdown component for character styles.

Reproducible: Always
