Default Any way to "pin" dialog boxes?

Say you are formatting a paragraph. You click Forrmat/Paragraph and the properties dialog box appears and you make the changes then click "OK." It would be SO NICE if the dialog box would just stay there so you can change other paragraphs without having to reopen the thing every time.

You can "pin" other places in Windows. Why not here??? Or can you???

Only some dialog boxes can remain open as you work in the document. The Paragraph dialog box isn't one of them, I'm afraid. But note that you can use the Paragraph command on the right-click (context) menu; that lets you open the dialog more quickly. The quickest way, by far, is to assign a keyboard shortcut to the built-in FormatParagraph command (Tools | Customize).
