Summary0005590: queer toolbar refresh issue in SE when applying a style to a selection
DescriptionThis one's strange. I was afraid it was my fault from my patch in 0005577, but it was there in the original version as well.

If you select text _with the mouse_ -- but _not_ if you select it with shift+arrow keys -- and then apply a paragraph style, the toolbars at the top are not refreshed until the cursor is moved with the arrow keys.

It doesn't matter whether you use the style combobox on the toolbar or the sidebar to set the style, except if you use the sidebar then even the style combobox on the toolbar is not updated. The sidebar itself always seems to refresh correctly.
Steps To Reproduce1.)

- Open SE with some text with multiple styles, preferably with different font sizes or properties to highlight the problem.
- use the mouse to select some text, then change its style to one with a different font size -> note that the font size shown on the toolbar is not updated
- now use the mouse to click into different paragraphs and note that neither the font size or the style are refreshed on the toolbars
- press an arrow key and note that everything works again


- repeat procedure, this time changing from a style to no style using the sidebar, and note that the alignment buttons stay active on the toolbar


- repeat procedure using shift+arrow keys to select and note that it works

Peter, I suggest we close this ticket as 'unable to reproduce' and then open a new ticket based on:
>> "Paragraph Style" combo box keep going back "No Style", if change the paragraph style."
and link that to 0010650
Thoughts ?
