graphical explanation

Problem description: 

Steps to reproduce:
1. In a text block we select some text in the same format and type something

Current behavior:
It formats what we typed as the symbol right before the selection

Expected behavior:
The format of the typed text must be as the first symbol in the selection

It also reproduces in Writer

Operating System: Windows 8
Version: release

Reproduced with - Ubuntu 12.04
Comment 2 ign_christian 2014-10-22 02:36:50 UTC
Also reproduced with LO and AOO 4.1.1, seems inherited from OOO and I guess this issue should've been reported before.

Have installed LO 5.2.4 in Win8 but couldn't start it. The start up screen was hanging for more than 5 min before I killed it.

Succeeded 32bit version:

CPU Threads: 4; OS Version: Windows 6.2; UI Render: default; 
Locale: ru-RU (ru_RU); Calc: group

The bug is present, the behavior is the same, nothing changed.

Comment 8 Thomas Lendo 2019-09-09 19:39:54 UTC
Still reproducible.
Build ID: f76dbe5dc581845996a8bd5f5109c5e2ff5a27b0
CPU threads: 4; OS: Linux 4.15; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3; 
TinderBox: Linux-rpm_deb-x86_64@86-TDF, Branch:master, Time: 2019-09-09_05:13:31

One of the typical situations when LibreOffice deletes text and inserts the new text afterwards instead of "exchanging" text. See meta bug 127250.
Comment 9 Thomas Lendo QA 2020-08-16 12:45:10 UTC
Maybe a duplicate of Bug 79717 - EDITING: Overwriting selected text doesn't always maintain formatting (edit) although it's for Writer.
Comment 10 Thomas Lendo 2020-08-24 19:13:40 UTC
Can't reproduce this issue anymore according to the steps in the attachment.

Tested with
Build ID: a06a83b29a9da770787bffe416b138102aa12531
CPU threads: 2; OS: Linux 5.4; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3
Locale: de-AT (de_AT.UTF-8); UI: en-US
TinderBox: Linux-rpm_deb-x86_64@86-TDF, Branch:master, Time: 2020-08-24_01:03:26
Calc: CL

I make it a duplicate of bug 79717 as there is described the same situation and it seems that is was fixed.
