Description Hagar Delest 2012-12-10 22:07:00 UTC
If a direct formatting is applied on a part of a paragraph, then a new internal character style is created (T1 for example).
But if you apply a direct formatting to a whole paragraph, a new internal paragraph style is created and applied (P1 for example).
As a consequence, when you change the paragraph style with the styles drop-down list, P1 is lost, so your direct formatting is lost for that whole paragraph (but not for the string with direct formatting applied on a part of the paragraph).

Expected behavior: the whole paragraph should get an internal character style on top of the already applied paragraph style so that the direct formatting is preserved.

For further detail with content.xml analysis, see this post: and following posts.

Rationale: the direct formatting behavior should be consistent when applied to a part of a paragraph and a whole paragraph.

NB: same behavior in LibreOffice.
