The file to test the paragraph format coping.

I tried Libreoffice 4.1.1-rc1, the Format Paint Brush can copy the Font Format, but it can not copy the Paragraph Format.
You can download attachment PaintBrush-paragraph.odt to test this problem with Libreoffice 4.1.1-rc1.
Thank you~

Behaviour of format paintbrush has changed since 4.0: by default only character formatting is copied, to include paragraph formatting hold down Ctrl when you select the text (or Ctrl+Shift for copying only paragraph formatting).
