that is a really nice setup, I'm going to steal it too (I usually have
the navbar and the style staked on top of ach other, but I like yours
better).  Style-at-point is useful for formatting but one thing I like
about both scrivener and org-mode is how little emphasis is placed on
interfaces for styles.  Instead you focus on content.  Libreoffice
doesn't have anything like the "synopsis" property that scrivener
associates with document nodes -- mostly I guess because the document
model is quite different.
