From my tests, you should be seeing the text in 12 pt. For the design of the text system as it is that is correct, and will not be changed in 1.4.x. Further text developments will come in or after 1.5.0

i agree with hbemus' expectactions on how formatting should apply to the text appended at the end of the frame.

but cbradney is right, this is how currently scribus works and the this behavior is by design.

as i already had a chance to say, i don't think that it is a good idea to store the formatting as a frame property and we should find a better way of defining and storing the formatting information when a frame is empty (newly created or emptied).

but this won't happen in 1.4.x for sure.
