I seem to recall that this has always been the case, at least under Linux
Mint with various versions of LibreOffice.  Interestingly, if on the second
line one puts some text (not in bold as one would expect) and then do
newline and move the cursor back up to before the text on line two it shows
bold as being off.  (I have to say that one thing which I miss in Writer
and also in Word, when I used it, is the approach that WordPerfect used (or
maybe still does if it still exists) whereby one could see the codes that
switched bold, and underlining etc. on and off.  One could then see exactly
where the bolding started and stopped.)

I have verified this in alpha and under Fedora 21

I can also see that the problem is NOT apparent under XP on

What OS are you using?

I have found a strange action by Writer. I think it might be a bug, but
not sure. At the moment I'm using LibreOffice Writer But, I have
verified this also in,,, and

In a Writer text document, on a blank line, do this:

1. Turn on Bold either by Ctr+B or by toolbar button.
2. Type some text in bold font.
3. Before pressing Enter, Type Ctl+B to turn bold off.
4. Press Enter two times.
5. Press the Up arrow one time.
6. Look at the Bold toolbar button, Bold will be back on.

I just tested LibreOffice, and OpenOffice 4.3.1, both of those do
not act this way.
