Description csongor 2019-11-15 01:14:49 UTC
I would like to have Character Styles in Impress. 

Now, if I create a style based on a selection of a single character and apply it later then it applies it for the whole paragraph, not just the selected characters. 

I want to write bullet points of normal texts with some code samples inside them. I wanted to define a style for the code snippets but if it gets applied to the whole paragraph then it does not help.


Data Types:
- string ("abcd")
- integer (12)
- float (3.14)

The characters that I surrounded here by parenthesis, should be written with a monospaced font (eg. Courier) and the name of the types should be written with a proportional font (eg. Arial).

Currently, I cannot do this with styles and if I have many code samples in my presentation then I need to do everything manually. 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a bullet point list with 2 points, two words in each
2. reformat a word in the first line to be bold (or red, whatever)
3. define a style based on the selection
4. apply the style on one word in the second bullet point

Actual Results:
The whole list becomes bold (red, whatever)

Expected Results:
Just the selected word should change

Reproducible: Always

Un-marking this as a duplicate of 40871, as part of splitting that one up. We now have a meta-bug about different style categories missing in Impress (bug 152652) and individual requesting specific style categories - like this one.
