Creating new paragraph or character style does not honor selected text
^ That page states you can select text, and click the new paragraph or character style button to create a new style that uses the selected text as a base. This does not work at all, it just creates a new style with Myriad and default settings.
Also having this problem, and relatedly entire textboxes display incorrect fonts and settings in menus when highlighted and flickers back and forth trying to display correct text/formatting information.
File: Font "platform" is correct in this usage.
