Ability to edit graphic style in Graphic Styles
If I want to edit existing and saved graphic style, I have to apply it to an object, go to Appearance, make changes, open Graphic Styles palette again and Alt+Drag object with style over style thumbnail. This is very long way.
If I just select a style and go to Appearance and make changes — the link between style and appearance will just vanish (the name of style vanishes), these changes will apply only to new art, and style itself won't be changed.
Please, make a way to quickly edit styles without drag-n-drop routine. Why not double-clicking style thumb open Appearance in edit style mode or something? Why it only allows to change name? Why double-clicking swatch allows to change the color, but double-clicking style only allows to change name?
Also, why there is still no assignable hotkey for this? Using an action slot for this feels wasteful.
Yes, Redefine works! Thanks, Margaret (if I recall correctly, you even have an action to call this?) Quite hidden, like merging swatches... Still, opening a window/panel/whatever to edit the style chosen can be useful.

Areed, although for now I'd at least settle for being able to create, edit and delete graphic styles in extendscript. Then we'd be able to script our way out of the awkward mess graphic styles are currently in.

There's a "redefine graphic style" item in the Appearance palette's menu.
