Description umr5174 2005-05-27 14:12:13 UTC
In File: Templates: Organize...: Template management,
It'd be better if one could see an example of the focused style, before to
decide to copy it or not.
+ In styles list, each style name could be formatted according to the character
attribute of this style (its own style).
+ If a paragraph style is focused in the list, a small paragraph, formatted
according to the focused style, could appear as an example.

I think it would be useful to have a preview anywhere, not only in Templates Manegement dialog. But that's not a trivial task.

And please also see "Bug 41717 - Paragraph Style Dropdown should show preview in Format Toolbar of Writer and Calc "

I think this RFE is crystal clear, no example required. I will attach some primitive mockup.
