Character style applied loses italic / bold formatting



I have a Paragraph style applied to chunk of text. Some full words, and
characters within words, are formatted with italics and / or bold.

I apply a Character style to the text within the paragragh. Note the
Character style is based on (underlying properties) + GREEN.

However, when Character Style is applied, any italic / bold formatting is

Is there a way to preserve the bold / italic formatting when applying a
character style. The bold / italic formatting is not consitient throughout
words so a new charater style with full bold / italics is not viable

You help in resolving this issue is most appreciated.

Unfortunately, I suspect not. If a character style is defined as Default
Paragraph Font + Font Color: Green, then it is going to apply formatting
based on the DPF. Since neither italics nor boldface are part of the DPF
definition, this formatting will be removed.
