Description markusf 2005-01-24 08:43:33 UTC
The problem also occurs on OO 1.1.3 with Windows NT
When you insert a file which contains bold text into another file in a 
paragraph where is also bold text, the text behind the inserted file get normal 
text attributes (the bold attribut is deleted).
You can use the attached file to reconstruct the error.
Open file2.sxw insert file1.sxw after "Insert File1 here:" then 
the "aaaaaaa..." loses the bold attribut.

MRU->OS: inserting the mentioned file at the marked point will stop the "Bold"
attribute for the text following the insertion point.

I replicated it.
i using OOo1.1.4 windows2000 5.00.2195 sevice pack 4
first i create a file contains one line all bold. then create another file 
contains all bold and try to use "insert">"file" give the first file. the text 
behind the inserted file become normal, but only happened in same line of the 
insertion place. the text afterward seems no change.
and i tried italic. the same, the text in the same line after become normal.
and i tried insert file with multiple lines. just the text after the last line 
of inserted file become normal.

The problem is reproducible in Ooo1.1.3, Ooo1.1.4 on Window XP build 2600 Intel
Pentium 3 processor 996MHz, 512MB of RAM and on Windows 2000 SP3 x86 Family 6
Model 5 Stepping 2AT/AT compatible 196,148 RAM.
It also reproduced in Ooo1.1.0 under Linux 2.4.26 Intel Celeron 766MHz 128MB RAM.
These are some follow up test cases:
Insert 'fileInsert' which does not have bold text in the middle or the begining
of text in 'file2', the last string within a line in 'file2' becomes normal format.
Insert File1 here:     FileInSert    aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa 
or
FileInSert Insert  File1 here:           aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa  

It does not change the format of the text in next line.
Sometimes, it is only affects the last word or the few last words and does not
affect the word right after the inserted position. Therefore, the deffect
behaviour is not consistent. It sometimes  changes its behavior when I create
new file and start insert the file into it , or I keep inserting the file then
undo--> save -->insert 'insertFile' and 'insertFileBold' for many times, and
somehow it works fine without the deffect.    
Comment 7 ammadaleem 2005-02-04 21:40:52 UTC
I was able to replicate the bug with Open Office 1.1 on a Linux OS and with Open
Office 1.4 on a Windows XP OS.

It appears that when inserting file A into file B, file B would loose bold
character after the point of insertion only if the terminating character in file
A is bold. Furthermore file B would only loose bold character on the line where
insertion was done. It would retain its bold character everywhere else.

Here are a few follow up tests and their results:

1 – Inserting an all-bold file A into file B which is bold before and after the
point of insertion: B looses bold character after point of insertion.

2 – Inserting an all-bold file A into file B which is bold only before the point
of insertion: No change occurs.

3 – Inserting an all-bold file A into file B which is bold only after the point
of insertion: B looses bold character after point of insertion.

4 – Inserting a partially-bold file A into file B which is bold before and after
and after the point of insertion: B looses bold character after point of insertion.

5 – Inserting a partially-bold file A into file B which is bold only before the
point of insertion: No change occurs.

6 – Inserting a partially-bold file A into file B which is bold only before the
point of insertion: B looses bold character after point of insertion.

I also performed some follow-up testing to find that the bug is limited to just
bold character or if it spills over to other font characteristics.

I was able to reproduce the problem in the following environments,
- MS Windows 2000 5.00.2195 Service Pack 4, OpenOffice 1.1.4
- Red Hat Linux 7.3 Kernel 2.4.26, OpenOffice 1.1.0

Steps Followed:
1.Start OpenOffice
2.Open file1
3.Format text (either italics,bold,underline)
4.Position cursor in the formated text of file1
5.Go to “Insert -> File†and insert file 2
6.Observer Results

In step 6 part of the data following the insertion point will lose its format 
and become normal.  The error is inconsistent as for some insertions only one 
line is affected, for others more than a paragraph can be affected (following 
the insertion point).

Follow-up Tests:
- tested: italics, bold, underline

There is a small typo in the comment I submitted. I apologize. Here is the
correction. The last paragraph should read:

'I also performed some follow-up testing to find that the bug is limited to just
bold character and does not spill over to other font characteristics.'
