Screenshot of cell templates
running LO on Mac:
CPU-Threads: 8; BS: Mac OS X 10.13.6; UI-Render: Standard;
Gebietsschema: de-DE (de_DE.UTF-8); Calc: group threaded
Setting up conditional format (CF) to ONLY format SOME property of a cell's format by adding a new format template, setting e. g. only background every other line (yup: still love that old line printer striped output style...) or setting only font color.
When using the CF and copying it to other cells it bloats by adding other properties from cells. I have not been able to identify WHEN this happens.
Example screenshots attached as a) new template setting only RGB [Bildschirmfoto 2019-04-23 um 09.50.38.png] and b) a template after repeated use [Bildschirmfoto 2019-04-23 um 09.50.56.png].
It would be nice, if
1) - (preferred) one could control this "sucking up" of properties by explicitly allowing or denying it or
2) - (less desirable) one could remove unwanted properties from the template after the fact
(1) and 2) would make templates more useful, too) or
3) - (alternatively, but less flexible) it would not happen.
A detailed set of instructions with sample files so that we could try and observe the behaviour ourselves would be most useful, otherwise it is going to be hard to confirm, especially seeing as you have admitted that you don't know exactly when this occurs.
I seem to recall that cell text attributes have been "picked up" for quite a while now, and it is just that in your particular use case has irked you enough to raise a flag ;-)
When you write the following :
"When using the CF and copying it to other cells it bloats by adding other properties from cells. I have not been able to identify WHEN this happens."
What exactly do you mean ? Which other properties in particular ? Or, are only some properties picked up, seemingly at random ?
One way to try and pin down the changes would be to carry out a comparison of the XML produced in the ODS file before and after application of the template.
