For using English phrases in a German document, I have defines a character format named "Englisch" (The German word for "English") that only sets the text language to English. That works.
However the following problem exists: If there is a misspelled word in a phrase tagged with the "Englisch" character format, and I choose the right mouse button to fix the word, the word is fixed, but the character format is lost (it's "Standard" then). The character format shouldn't be changed by spell correction!

If a spelling correction changes the underlying character style, this is NOT a "minor bug" IMHO: The task of the product is text formatting, and if the formatting is ruined, it's a severe bug, not a minor bug.

I encourage you to analyze 7000 bug reports, think about their severity in a relative manner and then come back to tell me, if you still think that way.
If an unwanted change is done to the document, it cannot be a minor bug! If it would be just a display issue, maybe then.

https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/images/0/06/Prioritizing_Bugs_Flowchart.jpg Does bug make it substantially harder to make high quality work or require users to not use some features? If yes, then minor.

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.
There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.
If you have time, please do the following:
Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/
If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
Please DO NOT
Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not
appropriate in this case)
If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from http://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/
2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!
Seems to be one of the problems of 'exchanging' content where LibreOffice in reality deletes content and then inserts new content. This results in losing formatting/style definitions.

Thanks, Phil. I guess it's a duplicate of bug 51423 as well.
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 51423 ***
Just to be sure: I could reproduce in 18.104.22.168 like this:
(Using German localization, sorry)
Add some random letters and a word "bappel" in the middle.
Then mark the first letter and assign some character style to it (I mean via style sheet).
The right click on that word and accept "Pappel" as correct spelling.
The spelling changes and the assigned character style is gone.
It also happens when I assign the character style directly (not using a style sheet).
Ulrich: you can try with a master build to be sure https://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/master/current.html
The fix is suspected to be a side-effect of fixing bug 135721
