    Description

      A new feature to show what paragraph style the selected text area uses when editing text in atto.

      If user paints text area or hovers over it with their mouse, atto would show a small text label of what paragraph style is in use within the currently selected/highlighted text area.

      Is is large, medium or small heading, pre-formatted text or paragraph (or any other custom style if there is those).

      It could use either of these ways to display the information:

      1. Floating a label top of the selected text similar way as html title-text label
      2. Showing information right below text editors input field
      3. If user opens Paragraph style menu, it would would automatically select/highlight the style that is currently painted over

      Either option would be fine, 2 or 3 probably most usable because they do no rely on hover function. 2 has added bonus it would show the information right away without additional click.

      (While text style is the main focus here, this same feature could also be used to label other elements used like images, tables, videos etc., so selecting image it would give text hint that image is selected)
