When editing a PowerPoint presentation which contains text boxes with placeholder content ("Click to add title"), merely clicking on the box, and then clicking anywhere else on the slide changes the formatting of the text to LibreOffice default, deleting the custom formatting previously set.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the attached presentation
2. Click on any text box, do nothing else, then click any other part of the slide (e.g. another text box)
3. Witness that the formatting of the first text box has reverted to LibreOffice default, and all previous formatting has been lost
Formatting is lost of the no-longer selected text box
Formatting remains -- no editing has taken place, so the first text box should be unaffected.
