Summary0012271: Search & Replace: screws formatting
DescriptionWhen replacing a shorter by a longer word, the additional characters adopt the paragraph's basic formatting. This might be fine if a whole word is added but not if a word is altered or corrected.

See the Screenshot:
- first line is status quo ante
- second line: replacing "Scrbus" by "Scribus" leads to the last character not being bold. => certainly wrong
- third line: replacing "Scrbus" by "Scrbus is" leads to the new word not being bold. => possibly correct, however unexpected
- fourth line: replacing "Scrbus" by "Is Scrbus" leads to the first 6 characters being bold. => certainly wrong.

While a really smart solution isn't all to easy without calculating word similarities etc., we would probably be better off when extending the formatting of the matched string (or its first character) itself to the whole replacement string.
Additional InformationThis is a problem especially if the user can't undo correctly. Escalating this to 'Major' and 'high'
