1. Write a line in writer;
2. Highlight the line;
3. Change paragraph spacing from sidebar
Observed: Text disappears
Expected: Spacing changes, text remains there
Seems like it always worked this way:
Minor: Can slow down professional quality work but will not prevent (undo possible);
High: Makes the sidebar spacing much less functional + regression + common task
Missed a step in instructions:
1) write a word;
2) highlight word;
3) Put cursor in sidebar paragraph spacing (above or below) input field;
4) change value to 1;
5) push enter
So it seems like Writer is treating it like the cursor is not in the sidebar but instead is just in the document but this isn't the case, the cursor actually is obviously in the sidebar as you can see it blinking in the sidebar so IMHO nothing you do there should be able to completely delete text.
This being said, it's fair for UX to decide, feel free to close if you don't agree.
Confirmed this is a bug that goes all the way to when the sidebar was implemented.

1) Open Writer
2) In sidebar select a combobox (e.g. Styles) or spinbox (e.g. paragraph spacing above) and press enter
3) Notice that you Undo is now enabled in the toolbar and an new line was added in the document
Hmm, Linux only?

If I highlight paragraph and in the Sidebar Paragraph spacing--above or below-- enter 1 the spacing becomes 1.00 inch. If entered in both above and below, the two selected one word paragraphs will reformat-- 1.00" above the first, 2.00" separating the two, and 1.00" below the second.
This is behaving as I'd expect--although entering 1 is a rather unuseful value. The spinner widget is increasing and decreasing the values--for me in 2/100" increments. Also, the keyboard <Tab> and <Shift>+<Tab> movement between the button widgets in the content panel seem to be behaving. And <F10>, <F6> for focus navigation back to the document canvas is behaving as well.

Push enter after entering the number 1.
Oops, nevermind. It afflicts Windows builds also.
Just read Jay's note. And, entering "Enter" key while in the Paragraph content panel spacing spinners widgets does have a linkage to the selected text in the canvas. The "Enter" key action "inserts" blank text into what had been highlighted.
The Indent spinner widgets also do the same this of clobbering the selected paragraph with an Enter key press.

Please see the video.
In video I higlighted the text, then I changed the space to 1 and press ENTER several times. It seems it works ok.
