When I want to copy formatting using the stencil, the paragraph style is copied. It is not possible to copy only the formatting of characters without having the paragraph formatting also copied. This is annoying as you can see in the attached screenshots

Thanks for the explataion of the ctrl+click. It is nice, but most user will never know about it. The current behaviour is not what users would expect, I thus reopen the issue. This should be straightforward and work as in Excel. Maybe one approach would be : if you select text that is overloaded compared to the paragraph style, it should copy the overloaded attributes and not the paragraph style ?

Well personaly I don't know what "the users" want. I don't want the behavior you describe. But I'am not "the users"... Are you them? I guess this issue will only get fixed with a lot of votes. So start on it!

@es : :-) Nope, I am not "the users", but I work with many of them everyday who report to me what they love in the OOo behaviour and also what they would like to be improved. This issue was not "my" issue, but only one that a few users I work with reported. They told me that the behaviour in Word was more "natural" to them, thus I reported this issue. For sure, this is not a priority, but it is interresting to keep on mind that this could be improved. Best regards, Pierre-Andre
