I think your best hope would be scripting.
Well, here it is then: Quick Apply with Next Style!
This is a Quick Apply lookalike -- works only with paragraph styles, but
applies next style as well.
Tested on CS4 but should work with all later versions.
Mac and PC.

Feedback is appreciated, and let me know if something goes wrong.
Thanks for doing this. I haven't had a chance to try it yet, but I'm sure plenty of users wil find it invaluable.
Just want to to let you know, though, that the web address you posted isn't showing as a link here, and when copied into a new browser window it actually idsplayed the binary code in the browser, which wasn't too helpful. I went to your page, and tried the Downlaod Here link, withthe same result, so I tried the right-click, save link as method and hope that works correctly.
Yes, that works much better for downloading. Thanks.
Your script is exactly what I need but I just can't find a download link on the page.
