Edit: copying and pasting a table from another document doesn't reset formats
Steven, thanks for reporting the bug. Comparing 1st and 2nd screenshot, i can't see a table in a table, but a new table in a document. Is it possible to attach both documents (only the first side)? This would make it easier to reproduce the bug.
I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to 'UNCONFIRMED' once the requested document is provided.

The document before the problem occurs
Hello Dieter Praas,
I think you thought I didn't insert a table into a table because there might be a better way to format a document the way I do. If so, I don't know what it is. The point is that I use tables as an easy way to format documents, for instance, to align everything properly, or to create the grey borders on the top, the left side and the bottom of the document that you can see. The thing is that when I do this, I have to insert a table into a table, since the page itself is a table, and so on. But when I do, the formats I applied beforhand reset, hence erasing all the parameters of the formerly designed tables, making them look basic, so to speak (as though I did not format them whatsoever), which is not the purpose of what I intended to do in the first place.
I made a first copy of the document in question, which I kept formatting, unfortunately having had to redo all the table formatting of the first tables I made in the document, which you will find attached here.
You will also find a second copy of the document, in which I just inserted a new table below the last one I made (which is also inside a table).

I opened this and inserted a new table. The outer cells of the parent table keep their gray colour. Both with Win and Linux. I also saved and reloaded to be sure.
Please test with version 6.4.x
Set to NEEDINFO.
Change back to UNCONFIRMED, if the problem persists. Change to RESOLVED WORKSFORME, if the problem went away.
