It is common to highlight some words in a presentation, notably by using bold fonts and colors (at least for me). As far as I can tell, the presentation module doesn't have a GUI to select a character style so this has to be done manually, making it annoying to do and painfull to do in a consistent way, especially if we want to ajust the color later on.
As far as I can tell, the corresponding ODF relies on "local styles" anyway, so the backend should already support character styles, only the GUI is missing: the
Would it be possible to change the stylist used in the presentation and drawing modules to also show text styles (both paragraph and character styles)?

This bug was filed before the changes to Bugzilla on 2011-10-16. Thus it
started right out as NEW without ever being explicitly confirmed. The bug is
changed to state NEEDINFO for this reason. To move this bug from NEEDINFO back
to NEW please check if the bug still persists with the 3.5.0 beta1 or beta2 prereleases.

Please, attach presentation with described animation. Developers will see how it should be in presentation. And will improve UI for do it more handy.
Dear bug submitter!
Due to the fact, that there are a lot of NEEDINFO bugs with no answer within the last six months, we close all of these bugs.
To keep this message short, more infos are available @ https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA/NeedinfoClosure#Statement
Thanks for understanding and hopefully updating your bug, so that everything is prepared for developers to fix your problem.
Changing to NEW.

I would definitely up-vote this enhancement request. I'm an engineering post-doc and I use chemical symbols all the time; I often need to indicate chemical charge states with super-scripts. The current super-script setting accessed by ctrl-shift-p is not desirable to me; I would much prefer a value for "raise/lower by" of 67% compared to the default value of 33% (I don't understand why this is the default, but that's a separate issue). In writer I could address this by creating a new character style and assigning it to a customized keyboard shortcut. However, I cannot do this in impress. This dramatically slows down by presentation preparation. Automating this process would be extremely helpful to me.
Is adding support for character styles in impress a very difficult problem? If it's something simple that developers won't get to because it's not a high priority, then I would be happy to explore a code fix myself.

Too many bugs & enhancements and too little hands :)
It would be fantastic, if you would explore it https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Development/GetInvolved
