Description Patrik 2014-08-11 19:23:17 UTC
Please provide a better way to organize styles. I always need the same bunch of styles, some are custom made, some are standard but changed, some are standard unchanged.

I already have a custom template for this, however the F11 style dialog either shows too much styles to be useful or not those I want. 

I suggest 
1) a "favorite styles" enhancement, allowing me to mark any existing style as favorite. They should be visible in the style dialog whether I used these styles or not.
2) or a search field for styles, where the existing styles get thinned out as I type (like google search with suggestions). This feature should be accessible by keyboard shortcut to be useful. 


*Unfortunately I seem unable to do a feature request properly as suggested, as an enhancement (bug). There is no enhancement that I can find on this website.

Operating System: All
Version: Master

Confirmed that a search or favorite function would be nice. Set as enhancement and New - Sophie

I wonder if nobody else thinks that the style-pane could be improved by something like this. There have been no comments, maybe there exists another feature-request with something similar?

Any way, I have now created custom versions of heading1-6 and everything that I need repeatedly, just so they show up under custom styles all together. I also use keyboard-shortcuts for styles a lot.

Switching between the numerous styles, just to get to the ones that I use regularly costs time, and I have to do it often. However, the styles I need do change, and I keep wishing for a quick way to switch between them - without having to redefine standard-styles as custom ones.

It could be kind of similar to the starring in gmail, google-docs, Thunderbird or bookmarking in Firefox - enabling me to have the styles, that I need this time ready in the format pane.
