I've not been able to connect to Bugzilla for ages, so I'm afraid I have
to send the bug report to the list. Sorry.
Cut and paste is bad at preserving formatting. To see this, set up a
document with styles that differ from the built-in defaults. Cut a
fragment of a paragraph, and paste it elswhere. Some formatting is lost.
In particular, language information is lost. (For example, if I cut
en-US text and paste to elsewhere in an en-US document, it gets pasted
Now try with a whole paragraph. The paragraph following the pasted one
loses any special paragraph formatting. (Justified text, indented first
line, space before, etc.)
Also, Abi doesn't like you trying to select a multi-line paragraph. If
you click and drag in the margins to select by line, you also select the
paragraph return closing the previous paragraph. Indeed, this happens if
you try to select the first line of any paragraph. A paragraph should
include the closing, but not the opening, paragraph return, because the
first paragraph in a document doesn't have an opening return but it does
have a closing one.
