    Problem

     

    When one styled AND formatted object is selected a red triangle can be seen on both the Styles and the Appearance inspector tabs:

    When two styled AND formatted objects are selected a red triangle can be seen on the Appearance inspector tab...

    … but NOT on the Styles tab :-(

    Idea

     

    Make the interface more consistent and also show the red triangle on the styles tab when multiple objects are selected and at least one of them has extra formatting!
