If you highlight a cell and move the content to another cell with drag/drop, the
formatting of the source cell is being destroyed (set back to default). That is
annoying, I would expect the source cell to remain in the format it had before
the drag/drop. It becomes especially obvious when you have formatted with
another font size than the default size.

My (annoying) workaround is to just copy the cells to another place and then
highlight the source cells and delete the content by simply hitting the delete
button. Doing it this way doesn't touch the source cell's format.

I love Open Office and thank you in advance for your efforts!

Confirming with 2.2m7 on WinXP.
Repro steps:
1. Start Calc, type random text in cell A1.
2. Apply random color (say red) to this cell.
3. Select this cell and move (using D&D) to A2.
4. Type something in A1 - text will have default color.
