1. Input several paragraph of texts 2. Select them all and apply a character format, for example: Blod 3. Click paintbrush button in the toolbar (paragraphs still remain selected) 4. Click anywhere outside the text area in the page result: character format of the last paragraph has gone.

Cannot reproduce with OOO320m2 on Vista. What about specifying your system, the OOo version, attach a sample document? Ok I *can* reproduce something like that which is not directly that what you describe: 1-3 same as described 4. clic in the margin in front of any of the selected paragraphs -> this paragraph gets resetted to the default formatting. Is it what you mean? If yes, I don't know if it a bug or a feature...

Hi es, Yes, it is. I always clicked below the text area, so always changed the last paragraph. I reproduced this in both windows and linux. Thank for the new discovery. Best regards, Lihua

This is apparently the same root cause as Issue 83535. 2 things: - by default, the paintbrush function copies the character AND paragraph attributes. - if you don't "paint" the target (selecting) you will only see the paragraph changes. There is not reset if you make Ctrl+Click (no paragraph attributes) Please see the thread "Issues about paintbrush" in email@example.com. We need to re-think this behavior. Reassigned to Requirements
