Yeah I know, but with this I will still have to write all the text
formatting code on my own I guess?

So I have to cut the selection and scan it for already existing tags
and reinsert it with the new tags.

E.g. if I have "this is italic and this too" and I select the whole text
and make it bold I want to get
"this is italic and this too"

To make it work I have to scan the text and to cut the text into pieces
"this is", "italic", "and this", "too" and insert it with

InsertWithTagsByName(iter, this is", ["bold"])
InsertWithTagsByName(iter, "italic", ["bold", "italic"])

Which seems to be more complicated then necessary :-(

What I want to say is 



And to update the editing buttons I would like an event like this:

  // change the togglebutton appearance according to text state
  if (textbuffer.IsItalic)
    italic_button.Active = true;
    italic_button.Active = false;


Am I the only one in need of something like this?

Thanks a lot, Fabian
