I have various text layers in GIMP, all with different formatting (boldness, size, font). If I write additional text in the middle/end of any of them, it keeps the original formatting that layer has. But if I delete/select the whole text inside the box, and write something, it replaces the formatting with the formatting of the previous text box. Or with the default. Or sometimes it still keeps the formatting.
What is going on? How is GIMP's mechanism working? It is super annoying to always check because I never get the behaviour I would expect. I would prefer that each text box keeps it's formatting, even if I delete the whole text.
