Format Paintbrush and delete button strange behavior


After updating to libreoffice-calc-, the “format paintbrush” copies the format but also deletes the contents of the cell(s) that is applied. Also, the delete button along with the comments, it also removes the formatting of the cell that it is applied.

Is there a way to change back to the previous friendlier version of these functions?

Kind regards,

What is your operating system name/version?

I am using Fedora 19.

I acquired it from a regular fedora update.

I will reinstall and if it insists, I will report the bug.

Thank you!

Looks like you are using pre-release version of LibreOffice. This is strange behavior… maybe even bug. Can you always reproduce the problem the same way - like step-by-step instruction how to do it? If yes, then I suggest to report a bug at bugtracker:
