Comments inserted in a Writer document can be formatted (fonts,etc.). However, when "Format all Comments", the next comment added will still be in the old, the default format.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Add a comment in Writer.
2.Do "Format all Comments" and change the font type/style
3. Add new comment.
Actual Results:  
still the old, previous formatting

Expected Results:  
all new comments should be formatted in the new style. but they are not.

Asking design: should the behavior of "format all comments" be changed to also refer to any future comments? Or better to implement comment styles??
Comment 2 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2016-10-14 14:45:29 UTC
Yes after setting it to format all the next inserted one should retain the set formatting.
