a line of text which is partially italic
Interesting bug report. Could be a test question.
What probably happened is that you marked "Test1" italic and then typed "Test2" and then turned off italic for Test2.
But that didn't reset chars, it actually set direct formatting of normal i.e. not beiug italic.
So when you type enters, they carry direct formatting of being normal (so your paste of italic is reset to normal)...weird, ha.
I will not take this as bug because it's a long know issue, already discussed, just that I can't find a bug now. So this is either rejected or a duplicate.
Discussion was: if you set direct f. like italic and then remove italic, should text be cleared of direct f., because now is, as explained, direct formatted as normal without italic.
Let me add that there's hardly a "proper" was to do this.
Because when you removed italic from Test2, you might've said:
1. I just want to reset - and this would be wrong, further enters bring what you didn't want - but you should have removed direct format, not again applied a new one.
2. I do not want any italic now - and this would be correct, further enters carry correct intention - so this all makes sense with some understanding.
Isn't it normal to expect a COPY of something to be 100% identical to the source? Why are other formatting got carried over verbatim, like superscript/subscript/bold?
BTW, this problem only happens sporadically, sometimes it happens sometimes it doesn't.
If what you said is true, then shouldn't italics in all copy/paste scenarios be reverted back to normal?
