1. new document, add some text
2. one paragraph with Heading 2   (I only tested it with this style)
3. enter, next paragraph is Text body
4. Save as DOCX and close
5. Reopen
6. Enter at end of par with heading 2
  > Still heading 2

(Look at style properties, tab Organize..)

Hi Cor -

Can you test this again? I just tested with:

Bodhi Moksha
Build ID: 5df326438fd3a5613a52b4de1935426911ff1301

Works fine. I don't want to spend the time bibisecting it if it's resolved in 5.2 for you. Thanks

I see...I was misreading the steps. 

Bodhi Moksha

Setting to:
Minor - slows down but won't prevent high quality work.
Medium - regression so bumped from low

Some interesting findings with bibisect:
1) I can reproduce the problem in both 50max and 44max bibisects...
2) Going back all the way to 35all I can get to a commit that doesn't show the problem - this is somewhat surprising only because you said with you don't see the issue (I'm not sure if is included in 35all)
