Description elliot 2017-05-28 09:09:18 UTC
If I attempt to select multiple cells in a table in order to format them a certain colour, they will only become that colour if they are originally of the same colour. Otherwise, nothing happens.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create table (2 x 1)
2.Format one to be blue
3.Format one to be red
4.Attempt to format both simultaneously to be yellow

Actual Results:  
Step 4 produces no change.

Expected Results:
Step 4 should have coloured both cells yellow.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Thanks for your bug report, Elliot.
But I can't reproduce the bug.

Do the problem occur in more than one file?
Can you attach a test document to verify your problem?
