Description ask4support 2017-10-01 14:50:17 UTC
The font name and size both disappear when more than 1000 paragraphs are selected. 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the attached file
2. Select all the text between the start of the first line and before the end of the last line and have a look at the font name and font size. 
3. Select the last line as well and the font name and font size will both disappear. 

Actual Results:  
Inability to see the font name and size of more that 1000 paragraphs while there are absolutely no deviations in their style. 

The font and its size can actually be changed even for more than 1000 paragraphs, but neither one will be shown. 

Expected Results:
Being able to tell the font and it's size even for more than 1000 paragraphs. 

Reproducible: Always

Reproducible for me with LO (I was very surprised about it).

Confirming, converting to Flat ODF the styles are identical for all the paragraphs, and that the font list and size value listboxes empty when making a selection of all paragraphs. Adding paragraphs does not move the point where the listboxes are emptied.

Neither does the font and quantity of text selected, nor is the page count an issue. I have the same loss even if I change the number sequence to just a single text string "xXx", or change font and size for the style.

Poking at it, it seems that when the count of selected paragraphs goes from 1000 -> 1001 we loose the font formatting for the selection.  Suggests there is a logic issue, a size limit being crossed 999 -> 1000?

So its not just the font name and font size controls that are affected, horizontal alignment, text direction, spacing and indent are as well. You can easily see this with the sidebar properties deck open.
Comment 5 ask4support 2017-10-22 12:58:44 UTC
The "Tabs" tab in paragraph properties is affected as well.
Comment 6 ask4support 2017-10-22 13:30:29 UTC
The indent controls on rulers are affected as well.
