Clear Direct Formatting removes Conditional Formatting.
Conditional Format itself is deleted when entire spreadsheet is selected.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a spreadsheet with Conditional Formatting (i.e., change background for odd rows) for the range A2:E9
2. Right-click E5 and select Clear Direct Formatting.
3. The Conditional Format will no longer appy to E5. Checking the conditional format will show the range changed from A2:E9 to A2:D9,E2:E4,E6:E9.
Please see attached sample spreadsheet and image.
Conditional Format is removed.
If the entire spreadsheet is selected and Clear Direct Formatting is selected, the Conditional Format itself will be deleted.
Conditional Format is not removed. The range stays the same.
The Conditional Format itself is NOT deleted.
User Profile Reset: No
From the Help:
Clear Direct Formatting
Removes direct formatting and formatting by character styles from the selection.
Direct formatting is formatting that you applied without using styles, such as setting bold typeface by clicking the Bold icon.

Reproduces in Windows with OO 3.3 and LO 6.3+.
I'm not sure if this is by design, if Conditional Formatting is applied as Direct Formatting.

This is either a bug either we need to update documentation to explain this important issue. So I'll set to New. But we still need good explanation.
