Character Styles palette for AE?

I think I may have suggested this many years ago, but it's worth another go:


What are the chances of seeing a character/paragraph style palette in AE? I'm sure I'm not alone in finding the method of copying/pasting a bit of text from a "desired" style into a new text layer, before deleting it and pasting/typing some unformatted text, so it matches the desired style. With the introduction, some time ago, of the ability to access text styles/fonts/etc via scripting/expressions, I'd have thought it wouldn't be too hard to implement an InDesign/Illustrator character style palette. Wouldn't that be nice?

 

(I know I could probably do this using mogrt templates and things, but that's an awkward and time-consuming workaround).

Slim at best? Just saying. There's so much dysfunctional stuff with text layers, including text style expressions, it probably wouldn't make much sense to have a palette until these things have been ironed out.

I like this idea. There's also a free tool for copy + pasting text styles between layers called Style Bandit.
