Description Gabriele Ponzo 2017-06-20 21:53:28 UTC
Using "Remove Direct Formatting" (CTRL+M) it should remove any property specified on a paragraph, bringing it back to its parent style.

But from 4.4 on, when you call that feature, all properties are reset, except for any background you've set, such as color, gradient, bitmap and so on, that remains there.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Writer
2. Set a background color (i.e. from Menu Format -> Paragraph --> Area)
3. hit CTRL+M (or click on "Remove Direct Formatting" button on Format ToolBar

Actual Results:  
The background stays there, other properties (i.e. bold, justified...) are correctly reset

Expected Results:
The paragraph's attributes should be all reset, including background, bringing that paragraph back to its parent style attributes.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

In 3.3 to 4.3, it used to be the 'Background' tab with options only to change the color and image and 4.4 it was changed to an 'Area' tab which has color, gradient, image, and hatch.

After saving and reloading LO applies the correct para back color. Could be a screen updating problem.

Not sure why you filed this bug Gabriele when you confirmed bug 99573 twenty days before filing this bug.

I'm sorry, I guess it's just because I forgot to note the other bug number on my (long) bug list.

I was teaching QA to newcomers and talking I just didn't take the note.

Sorry, I really apologize :(
