Change multiple different words in a block of text at once.

I think it would be great if Illustrator allowed, in a block of text, to select several words simultaneously and separately from each other, to be able to change their format (bold, or italic, or color, or another font, etc.) at once.

I had a quick look and can't find any similar requests, so this one would be a good addition.

Using character styles would achieve this wouldn't it?

How would you select individual non-contiguous words with character styles?

Yeah i see what you mean, - selecting a bunch of words then choosing a format could be nice.
Not sure this does exactly what you want, but using the eyedropper you can select a format, and then just apply it to indivisdual words using the 'option' key to turn the eyedropper into a 'paste style cursor' - so it works same as in InDesign to 'paste the style' onto the text one word at a time non-contiguous...
