Description t8m 2003-06-12 22:29:01 UTC
When I use the New character style from selection function in stylist and try to
overwrite some existing user defined style it is sometimes not overwritten
completely. Probably the properties of the old style which aren't defined in the
new style aren't overwritten by the function.

1. Write some text with default style.
2. Select part of it and change for example font family to a diffferent one.
3. Create style Test using the New style from selection.
4. Select different part of the text and change weight to bold.
5. Create style Test using the New style from selection by overwriting the old one.
6. See that the new Test style has not only bold property but also changed font

Confirmed 1.1.0  

I don't know that this is a bug, though -- there are two valid
arguments here.  

However, I would, personally, expect that overwriting the Test style
after application of the bold attribute to the "old" font would change
not only the bold attribute, but the font as well (back to the
previous font).  This is the behavior I would expect, and would
consider the current behavior to be a bug and not an intuitive
application of the New Style from Selection process.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
