Totally agree with you that it to complex for the average user and is geared
towards the power/advanced user. One of the biggest problems i see with it is
that it doesnt list both paragraph and character styles in the same view, which
does cause quite a bit of hassle (recently happened with joel). Didnt know drag
& drop was possible, thanks. :D

It is somewhat context aware, as the list switches from paragraph styles to
frame styles when you click on an image. But then writer doesnt have shape
styles which impress does.

Dont think that adding the functionality into a dialog will reduce the
complexity of styles.

> - paragraph and character styles in paragraph and character properties

This would only be applicable to writer, as calc has cell styles and
impress/draw have graphic styles. There is a bug report for it (bug 73071).

> - frame styles in image (and related object) properties

I assume if we bundle more image styles that people can choose from, then it
maybe useful to have it in the image properties section.

> - page styles to page properties

I've suggested the creation of a page tab for the sidebar (bug 83830).

> - numbering styles - add numbering properties

We dont have a dedicated numbering properties section and we do have easy
numbering options, so i'm not sure how often numbering styles are used.
