Document showing the underisable behavior

When editing a text with different formats, and recording the changes made (menu Edit->Changes->Record), if something is deleted near characters with another format, the deleted content loses its formatting. A few examples are shown in the attached file.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a new writer document;
2. Write a text with different font, color, etc.
3. Remove some of the text;
4. Save;
5. Both Undo and 'reject the change' are not able to restore the original formatting.

Confirmed in Linux Mint in 3.3.0, 4.2.4 and 4.3 beta.

1. open blank document
2. type 'text text text text'
3. yellow highlight the second 'text'
4. turn on change recording (edit > changes > record)
5. delete the third 'text' and the space next to it right before the highlight
6. save the document
7. the yellow highlight spreads to the third 'text'
8. even pressing undo doesnt remove the yellow highlight for the third 'text'

This bug is still present in Libreoffice on Windows (reproduced via comment 1).
Comment 11 slkleo 2019-06-06 13:05:47 UTC
This bug is still present in Libreoffice Version: on linux.

Strangely, the bug occurs when dealing with *.odt files.
When editing *.docx files, Libreoffice works fine.

Reject supports clear formatting now, see Bug 52391.
