When clicking on style dropdown, a preview of that style should be displayed. This helps in making it clear to the user what the style will look like when the formatting is applied

FYI: issue for preview in stylist itself: issue 28781 and issue 28936 issue 28936 has a nice mockup of how preview in the stylist could be done in the UI (has a mockup of the style-dropdown as well).

I agree. As we have a font preview for selected font (preview can be activated in menu 'Tools -> Options -> OO -> View - Font List', AOO needs a preview for the selected paragraph style in the related dropdown. Such a preview is available in WORD, LibO 4, Calligra, but not in SoftMaker FreeOffice. I think the current dropdown without preview is anachronistic. Most important for Write, but also necessary for Calc.
