Changing font face also changes font size.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Select text with text selector tool
2. Select a new font face from the font face drop down menu
Expected results: font face changes while all other font properties remain the same.
Actual result: font face and font size properties change.
Using Illustrator v22.1
This issue occurs when using text that has a paragraph style applied to it.
This bug is still unresolved. I contacted Adobe Support with documentation months ago and was told it would be addressed and I would be emailed an update within days. No response. Please fix!

Yes, always reverts to 12 pt.. Also, often when one changes the face, style will be set to thin even if, say, regular, is chosen. I have to go back and set style to regular again.
