In this scenario, I have a Calc cell with formatted text (italics, underlining, boldface, font color etc.). Now if I want to change the formatting of a part of that same cell afterwards, I would naturally select the cell, go to the input line, select the part I want to change and press the appropriate keyboard shortcut, e.g. Ctrl-I for italics. Now the problem is that if the cursor is on the input line, pressing Ctrl removes all formatting from that cell. Doing the same in the table view does not have the same effect, so I can change the formatting of text with keyboard shortcuts as much as I want in the table view. The expected behavior would be for the cell to keep its formatting even if I try to use keyboard shortcuts on the input line.
Another user on Launchpad reported that the same problem persists in LibreOffice 188.8.131.52.

I can not reproduce, maybe you did a Ctrl+M wish remove all formatting

I can definitely observe the issue by simply pressing and releasing Ctrl, no other key involved. This is with libreoffice 184.108.40.206 on Ubuntu, not sure if it's an ubuntu-specific issue.
