Yes, this is planned. The advanced users have shortcut keys assigned to styles
so they don't use "Styles & Formatting" at all (and the sidebar in general)..

I'm aware of that, previously a refresh was not needed, but it is now so I just
need to find the right place to do a refresh. :)

I'm aware of that as well, alignment and other text related are planned.
Anything can be added, it is just a matter of reading the style and rendering
it. :)

I'll try to tune this when I have the time.
