Just a note. If a paragraph has been assigned a style and you select the paragraph and assign the same style there should be no change to the paragraph. This is the industry norm.
At this time Scrivener acts incorrectly in the above scenario. If you select a paragraph with a style and then pull the menu down to the same style Scrivener sets the paragraph to "No Style". But styles are not toggles (as with boldface for example. Styles switch to whatever style the user chooses and if the user chooses the same style there is no change.
This Scrivener behavior creates a problem when you try to make all the styles in a document consistent. If you have a document in which most of the document has a style, but (perhaps due to pasting) one or two paragraphs done, you want to fix the problem by selecting all and setting the style. That seems obvious, but it won't work. Instead it toggles some paragraphs to No Style and others to the style.
The work around is to select the entire document, set the entire document to a third style and then set it to the style you want. This is obviously not normal behavior in the industry.
