Build ID: 20011004 If you have a line of text in heading 1 that you want to drag into text that has a body text paragraph style, then the drag and drop will not work correctly. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Open Composer 2.Type a four lines of text 3.Change the fourth line to the preformat paragraph style 4.Highlight the fourth line and drag it into the middle of the first one Actual Results: The line of text will be split. On the top line you will have what was to the left of the dropped selection. On the next line will be the dragged selection. And on the third line will be what was on the right of the dropped selection. Expected Results: I would expect that the text would be placed on the first line and not create seperate lines for the text I dropped it into. Since it is in a different paragraph format I would expect the dropped selection to take on the paragraph style of the line it is being dropped into.

Ever confirmed: true
In the build 2001121003 this is still an issue. An interesting result is, if you do sort of an opposite and drag from the body text style to the preformat, the expected result happens. Steps to reproduce 1. Open Netscape 2. Open new composer 3. Type 4 lines of text 4. Change 4th line to " preformat " 5. Highlight 1st line of text 6. Drag highlighted text to the middle of " PREFORMATTED " text 7. Dragged text changes to " preformat " Odd thing that it does not work when going from " preformat " to " body text ".
Regarding Comment 4, the same interesting note you mentioned is also occuring on Mac OS X build 2001121805. Using the original steps as mentioned by the reporter, if you save the page and open it in navigator, it will also show the split line. Apparently both navigator and composer are also reading the "pre" tags as an insertion of a "br" however it is not showing that in the HTML Source.
Also happens with copy and paste. Type some normal text on a line, highlight some text that is wrapped with an H1 or similar, copy and paste into the normal text. You get a line split. Who owns copy paste?

I think this is a duplicate of a bug on Joe's plate (or hopefully he already knows about this issue?) -->jfrancis

this is by design. Users have indicated they want h1,h2, ... copied even if you select only part of it. this is different from most other blocks at copy time. then when you paste, you are pasting an h1 into a pre. DTD does not allow pre to contain h1, so i split the pre. working as designed. discussion?

OK, I'm with Joe (now that I understand the issue). <pre> text will be on it's own lines (as would other paragraph formats). Resolving as INVALID since this is desirable.

Summary: Can not drag and drop text if it will contain mixed paragraph styles → drag text of different paragraph style doesn't inherit drop paragraph style
