    Fix Version/s:     (was: 1.*)
> Setting syle like bold, font size, is too hard/complicated
> ----------------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: ODFTOOLKIT-115
>                 URL:
>             Project: ODF Toolkit
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: java
>    Affects Versions: odfdom-0.8.5
>         Environment: Operating System: All
> Platform: All
>            Reporter: kelvin
>            Assignee: Svante Schubert
>            Priority: Minor
> The convenience API does not make the setting of style easy enough. Too much of the underlying
ODF style model has to be learned and understood by the user.
> Additional APIs are needed to hide this complexity.
> For example, to make a table cell bold, I want something like:
> cell.setStyle( BOLD, true ) ;
> or cell.makeBold( true ) ;
> Under the covers, the toolkit should map these APIs to the appropriate lower level API
calls but the user should not have to learn them.
> For me this is a major inhibitor to using the Toolkit more.
