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.

One of the typical situations when LibreOffice deletes text and inserts the new text afterwards instead of "exchanging" text. See meta bug 127250.
