I am using LO, WinXP
Using Calc I have to create a table with several long lists of place names. I did create a style for those cells. Font = Arial, 10.5 points, language: German Most of the text I copy into the sheet from a text file using a UTF8 font

Did you want that font to carry across, or not? If not, you have a chance when pasting to use Paste Special instead of ordinary Paste and to select "Unformatted text": this carries across your text but preserves the formats of the destination cells.

HOWEVER, while most cells look "normal", some (there is no pattern I can discern) look definitely different. Yet, the both font and size window show exactly the parameter: Arial, 10.5 points The fonts in these strange cells looks like BOLD, but they are not.

Right clicking -> clear direct formatting -> no effect. applying / re-applying default style or my own custom style does NOT affect these aberrant cells. Is there any way to convince Calc that ALL cells should look the same?

You could try copying the range of cells, and then pasting it back over itself, but using Edit | Paste Special... (or right-click | Paste Special... or Ctrl+Shift+V) instead of ordinary Paste. In the Paste Special dialogue, remove the tick from "Paste all" if necessary and then ensure that Text (and anything else necessary) is ticked but Formats is not ticked.

Otherwise you may have to send a small sample document to someone to examine.

I trust this helps.
