Description freddi34 2013-02-23 20:49:55 UTC
When pasting formatted text into Impress, the undo action is incomplete and retains the formatting. This means the copy&paste action is not completely reversible.

Steps to reproducs:
1. Write in Impress "ab".
2. Write in Writer "c" and add formatting (italic, red).
3. Copy "c" from Writer and paste it in Impress between "a" and "b".
4. Press the "Undo" button in Impress.
5. Click between "a" and "b" and write "d". It will have the same formatting (italic, red) as the last character that had been pasted inbetween.

Expected behavior: "d" should have the same formatting as the surrounding text "ab".

Were able to reproduce it with LO It only happens when you don't move the cursor before tipping something.

Comment #1 is still valid for me with LibreOffice built at home under Ubuntu 14.10. If I move the cursor away from the place where I pasted the copied text (click outside the text area, move the cursor inside the text area using right or left arrow key), go back to the same place and type something, then the formatting is the one of surrounding characters, as expected.

Is it a bug or not ? Set status to NEEDINFO.

Best regards. JBF
