Description Sascha Fichtner 2015-01-20 00:03:32 UTC
Created attachment 112504 [details]
Simple repro showcasing how the settings are lost.

Problem description:
When inserting a new paragraph before an existing paragraph, the existing paragraph loses its 'Do not split paragraph' and 'Keep with next paragraph' settings.

Steps to reproduce:
Load the attached .odt file. All 3 paragraphs have both options enabled.
Move cursor to the start of 'Paragraph 2'.
Insert a new (empty) paragraph between 'Paragraph 1' and 'Paragraph 2' by hitting RETURN.

Current behavior:
'Paragraph 1' retains its settings (as expected).
The newly added 'Paragraph 1.5' inherits the settings from 'Paragraph 2' (as expected... sort of).
'Paragraph 2' has both options deselected.
'Paragraph 3' retains its settings (as expected).

Expected behavior:
'Paragraph 2' should not lose its settings.

Following the provided steps, I can confirm that I am observing the same behavior as described below. In addition to the listed version ( I also tested in a 3.3, 3.5, and 4.0 version and found the behavior the same. I believe that this bug is confirmed and I will change its status to 'New'.

But in addition to the previous comments I think, it's perhaps a consistent behaviour, because the paragraph after the cursor is always treatet as a new paragraph without settings (if you place the cursor at the end of paragraph 1 on press ENTER, the new paragraph has no settings).
