Summary0010650: Dysfunctional "Paragraph Style" ComboBox (Properties Palette) functionality
DescriptionProperties Window -> Text -> Style Settings -> Paragraph Style -> Remove Direct Paragraph Formatting: does nothing on my 1.4.1svn win2k.

The "Paragraph Style" ComboBox shows "No Style", but I do have a style; it can also show Test03_ps style, but I also have Test01_ps, Test02_ps and Test03_ps styles. From another point of view, it could be showing the frame global setting (PSTYLE attribute), but the user is actually looking at another set of styles <para PARENT="Test01_ps"/> because the global one is not active: shouldn't it be grayed out or similar ?.

May be renaming it to "Frame (Global) Paragraph Style" would help. May be adding other placebo entries (grayed out ?) to the ListBox can clarify things:

No global (frame) style
No Styles at All
Various Styles (internal with in text)

The GUI is not issuing events on user actions either, displaying almost always the wrong current situation/settings: please see comments on Document-3.sla. Not sure if this behavior will be the same on Linux ?
Additional InformationScreencast (Linux Mint 17.3; r21264)
