Summary0012789: Font Size changes of Paragraph Styles are not applied in some cases
DescriptionIn some cases, a change of font size of a style does not change the font size of text already using this style.
Steps To Reproduce1) Create a new Document.
2) Create a text frame and insert two paragraphs of text into this frame.
3) In the Sytle Manager (F3), create a new Paragraph Style called testStyle using a different Font Size in the Character Style tab as compared to the default one, e.g. 11pt. Click Apply.
3) Select the text frame and open the Story Editor (CTRL + T). Highlight the whole text (CTRL + A) and apply testStyle using the upper right drop-down box of the Story Editor. Update the text frame (CTRL + U).
4) In the Style Manager, change the Font Size of testStyle and apply this change. Problem: The text in the text frame does not get updated with the new font size.
TagsNo tags attached.

Indeed, this bug can't be reproduced anymore. But unfortunately not because it has been resolved, but because of the introduction of a new (quite serious) bug: step 3) from the above 'Steps To Reproduce' clears all text of the text frame without the possibility to restore it.
Kunda, is this what you've observed?

I can reproduce on 1.4.5.. I do not see this clearing of the text frame there.
