I think the properties that Calc considers cell formatting *are*
maintained by default, in fact.
I mean (specifically) the width and height of rows and columns is
ALWAYS what presumably is the "default" value.
The problem here is that row heights and column widths are not the
property of individual cells but of complete rows and columns, of
course. If the row heights and column widths of an arbitrary block
of cells were to be copied to an arbitrary destination, the effect
would be to change the heights and widths of other, entirely
unconnected cells - all the remaining cells in the rows and columns
concerned. In general, that would surely be unwelcome?
If you copy an entire row or block of rows, the row heights will be
carried over to the destination - and similarly for columns and
column widths. If you paste into the same sheet, the other property
will already be correct, but if you copy into a different sheet, this
will not be carried over, no doubt for the same reason.
I tried to use "paste special", indicating ONLY text and/or format,
but that does not change anything.
Paste Special can helpfully be used to suppress the default
modification of row heights and column widths when pasting entire
rows or columns, in fact.
I trust this helps.
