I see that you've updated the style list Tomaz with previews, which is great
but please do add a checkbox to be able to disable the previews. I'm assuming
alot of advanced users wont care for the preview, like Cor. :D

I was playing with the list and noticed a bug that if you modify an entry, it
wont refresh the preview.

Not sure if its useful to have style previews in frame, page, and list styles,
as they all look the same in the preview. It might be useful in frame styles if
its possible to show text alignment and borders. It might be useful in list
styles if its possible to show the bullets.

I see that we have an 'Automatic' setting in paragraph styles, which i believe
we can use to work similar to Word's 'Recommended' setting, because presently
all it is a duplicate of 'Text Styles'. So it would be useful to set
'Automatic' as the default view for paragraph styles and it should contain the

1. Entries under 'Applied Styles', so users can modify a style they have
already used.

2. Entries under 'Custom Styles', so users can edit a style they have created
but that hasnt been applied yet.

3. Primary text styles like 'Default Style', 'Text Body', 'Quotations', and
'Preformatted Text'.

4. Primary Heading styles like 'Title', 'Subtitle', 'Heading 1', 'Heading 2',
and 'Heading 3'.

5. Additional Heading styles when a previous Heading style is used, which means
that if a user selects 'Heading 3', 'Heading 4' should show up on the list, and
if a user selects 'Heading 4', 'Heading 5' should show up on the list, and so.
