Description fogexi4163 2020-05-06 13:11:31 UTC
I tried my best summing it up in the title.

I will try to explain it better here.

If I have a paragraph in which half is in Arial and another is in Times New Roman, and i move the cursor using the keyboard from the beggining to the end of it, the name of the font in the Ribbon will overlap (so in this case Arial+TNR). The same is true for different font sizes. I attached two pictures to explain what I mean. 


I can also reproduce the bug by first selecting a word written in Arial, deselecting it, and then selecting one in TNR. Same goes for different font sizes.

It happens regardless of font or size.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have a text with two font names (eg Arial and times new roman)
2. Select the word in arial
3. Deselect it
4. Select the one in TNR
5. Now font name will overlap like in the picture.

This is true for font size as well

Actual Results:
Font name overlap

Expected Results:
No overlapping

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No
