Description yndoendo 2015-03-17 18:11:13 UTC
Creating a table and changing the font face does not propagate to child cells.  End user keeps on having to change the new cell's font face when adding on to a table.

1) Create table
2) Select cells
3) Change font face
4) Insert row
5) New cells font style does not match parent table.

All new cells created after item three use the default font face instead of the table's font face.

An end user would expect the new cell font settings to mimic the already existing adjacent cell / row.

Have not checked to see which font settings stay with in the table cell creations.  At the moment I am under the assumption that none do.

What do you mean with "font face"?
Comment 2 yndoendo 2015-03-17 22:56:04 UTC
Font Face; meaning all or any aspects of fonts from Family or Name, color, size, to italicized or strike through.
Comment 3 A (Andy) 2015-03-18 17:31:20 UTC
Thanks for your fast reply.

For me not reproducible with LO, Win 8.1.  Maybe a Linux only issue?
Comment 4 yndoendo 2015-03-20 01:26:34 UTC
Turns out it occurs in the Microsoft Format docx and not in the odt document format.
Comment 5 A (Andy) 2015-03-20 17:53:10 UTC
Thanks for your note.

Now it is reproducible with LO, Win 8.1

Remark to reproduce it:
Between step 3 and 4 you have to save it as a docx-file, close and reopen it.
