Yes but I had more in mind then display properties like font size and style.

Sounds very much like the way word processors manage styles: define a set of attributes, assign a name to the set, apply that set by name to selections as you go.

If a change is needed just edit the style definition, click "Save Changes", and the changes are propagated to all objects to which that style has been assigned.

Do I understand the desired workflow?
