In my opinion, the possibility to search/replace Character Styles would be a MAJOR enhancement:

It would give a good workaround for the recurring problem of losing character styles (bold and italics) of imported documents.

To summarize quickly:

Singular words in italic or bold style can be applied in two ways: manually through the Properties Palette, or with a Character Style.

If we apply a Paragraph Style, all manual styling will be erased, but Character Styles will be preserved.

Therefore, a logical workflow when importing an ODT file that contains *italics* and **bolds** (manual styles) would be to replace them with Character Styles.

The search/replace function would allow to perform this in a few quick steps -- IF it would allow us to select Character Styles. Without that function, we have no other way to preserve those styles than by painfully applying the Character Styles one by one -- a complete waste of time if we handle long documents.
