I'd love to see a format paintbrush in this version of Scrivner, especially as a quickly accessible icon tool. Any plans on doing that?

Given how far we are into the beta I would suspect that such a request would not be possible this late into the beta. It would have had to have been sorta implemented back in the coding and to add it now would possibly delay/alter/or inhibit other features.

There is no intention to do so at this time, though I have marked this as a suggestion for us to look at later.

That said, most of what you desire can be accomplished using our styles feature. You can set up the formatting you'd like as a custom style and apply it from the right-click menu or through keyboard shortcuts. You can even use Format > Styles > New Style From Selection to copy any formatting you've already applied to use later.

Hope this helps.
