how to reproduce (step by step)

The problem occures only inside a table. So create a table and write some text into a cell. Copy some text using a different font and past it after the text in the cell. Now undo the pasting (CTRL-Z). If you now write some new text, this text uses the font from the text which has bem pasted before. So the undo only removes the text, but did not revert the font change!

See also step by step instructions in the attachment.

It looks like the problem also occurs outsie of a table. (see Bug 36958)

Bodhi Linux

Marking as NEW and prioritizing:

Minor: Doesn't prevent high quality work, instead just an annoyance that can be fixed by changing the font back (or copying text from document and pasting, this will copy the font settings)

Low: Only happens under specific scenarios, user would only notice if they pasted something with a different typeset and then undid the change. Also, easy work around.

This could easily be an enhancement request but I went ahead and left it as a bug report because I don't see why we would purposely do this :)

Bug still exists. But not all style parameters results in the same behavior:

Styles which are correctly handled on undo:
- font face

Styles parameters which are NOT handled on undo:
- bold
- underline
- italic
- font size
- ...

Affected version: (x64)  on Win7 Pro SP1
