Thanks for reporting this, Telesto.

I don't experience any issues with the font size changing within Windows (I know you tested with a Mac).

I used:

In older versions this seems to be somehow dependent on where exactly do you drag it to. I am able to get results where the font size matches the body text (12 pt) or is bigger (18 pt) depending on where I drag to.

I see the shrinking consistently on Linux & Win master, though. Linux gives me 9 pt and Windows 7,5 pt. It is not yet seen in the latest commit of Win 7.1 repo.

For me this depends on the zoom level, I get varying text size based on the current zoom.
I tested it very simply, added a comment to an empty document, and selected a piece of the comment text, then dragged it to the document area.

Happens with 3.3.0 as well, so not a regression.
