i'm working in a strictly structured way, having solely styles for my text. very annoyingly, every time i overwrite a word(s), the parastyle is copied into "direct char formatting" making it impossible to re-style a paragraph (as described in bug 89829) without first actively clearing the direct formatting. additionally, "character locale" cannot be cleared. (the only solution to this is: cut text out and paste without formatting).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. have a para with text, para style only
2. hilite a word, type oper it
in style inspector, you will see character direct formatting having values. when that paragraph is re-styled to some other values, these word(s) stick out, because they retain the direct formatting. "char locale" cannot be cleared anymore.
i do not understand, why in a cleanly styled para, some actions should ever set direct formatting.
clear direct formatting should truly clear all values.

Goodguy00, thank you for reporting the bug. I'm not sure, if I grasp the problem. I've treid the following steps:
1. Open a new document
2. Type a sentence, for example "This is a test"
3. Change paragraph style, for example select "Heading 1"
4. Open Style inspector; Character direct formatting has only list ID as entry
5. Select "is" and write "was"
Character direct formatting has a lot of entries
No further entries (works in this way with default paragraph style)

O. K. I set status to "NEW" then.
cc: Design-Team for double-check, because I'm not sure for 100%, if this is a bug or expected result.
To get the issue as described in comment 1, typing needs to overwrite something that has been marked. It works well in case of delete/insert per character.
And it also does not happen for Text Body (not tested other PS).
Mike, any idea?
