Description BDF 2021-04-08 21:27:21 UTC
When a regular text is copied into an endnote, the style of the copied text is applied to the endnote. Same is for the footnote.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Write any text that you want to copy into the end-/footnote
2. Add a end-/footnote
3. Copy the text into the footnote

Actual Results:
The style (fontsize) of the end-/footnote text is changed and the spacer vanishes.

Expected Results:
Keep the entire end-/footnote style as is.
If it is intended to copy the style along, keep at least the spacer.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
Maybe this is considered a normal behaviour since Writer is meant to copy the style with the text if not chosen to not do so.
Since the end-/footnote has a different style than the rest of the text, I would expect to change the style of the copied text for that. How likely is it that you copy a text and want to keep it's unique style in an end-/footnote?

If it's meant to be that way it still deletes the space between the text and the numbering. In an unchanged end-/footnote this seems to be some kind of protected space that can not be edited.

Repro from OO to 7.2+ with paste of non-directly formatted text from other style to endnote and footnote and also to any empty numbering. 
Example: Endnote style becomes Default paragraph style. So, no space between number and text is a consequence, not to be focused on. 
Workaround is to type a space and then paste. 

Is it a bug to be fixed? Yes, if possible, it would be desired not to change style. Interesting that MSO behaves like Lo. 

I could not find duplicates. Let's call UX.
