### Problem ###
It is very difficult to format text that has been added to an object (let's say
a standard box) or even a text-box. Many unnecessary additional steps are needed.
- The text-formatting toolbar only pops up when double-clicking object and
entering to text-edit mode.
- Formatting cannot be repeated on another object
- Formatting text in multiple objects is not possible

### Possible Resolution ###
- Show text formatting toolbar even when not in text-edit mode (e.g. when just
selecting an object), allowing formatting of the embedded text. This must also
work when multiple objects are selected.
- Allow repetitition of text formatting task

### Result ###
Will greatly enhance the ease of working with OO Draw, especially making
