TBH I think it would make sense that for Alignment the same icons used on
the toolbar would show to the left of the text (the space is already there
and unused)

For Line Spacing, since there are no icons for spacing and options are
mutually exclusive, it should indeed have a radio button.

One question: would it be possible to have the selected Style show in the
menu with a darker background (instead of hiding the icon) as it does on the
toolbar? (or is this a Windows bug?)
