Description Aron Budea 2019-03-18 14:40:06 UTC
- Open a presentation with text content.
- Change text properties for a piece of text (eg. make it bold or italic).

=> Presentation shows it isn't modified (state of save button doesn't change).

It only gets modified once you type something, or when you click outside the text box.

Observed using LO (205e2d6c31b1861111b70a704516580761a75099) & 3.3.0 / Ubuntu 18.04.

Please see the attached screencast.

- The presentation starts as unmodified.
- After changing a piece of text to bold it's still unmodified. <= bug
- After clicking away from text box, it becomes modified.
- For reference, after reloading and typing in the text box, the presentation becomes modified right away, no need to click away.

The build is (210ed60686009128bc772af6ba41650ad17d40e1) from two days ago, while I don't rule out the bug's become fixed in the past two days, I consider that unlikely, and for sure it's there in
Comment 5 Henry Castro 2019-03-22 12:01:14 UTC

Thanks, got it, I can reproduce in master, it is the shortcut Ctrl+B.

Working on it.

It should solve the problem, but first would you please verify?

With this patch, if I select a piece of text in the sample and apply attributes to it, the whole text gets it (eg. of the "11111" I select a single "1" and make it bold, the whole "11111" becomes bold). Before, only the selected text got the attribute change.
