--- Comment #7 from Heiko Tietze <tietze.heiko at gmail.com> ---
Highlight behavior: Word toggles the text background. But this feature is
inconsistent and works solely for the highlighting and not the font color or
other properties. LibO has the 'no fill' quick setting (like Word) as well as
ctrl+M to clear any direct formatting, and Undo to revert the last operation.
That works for most of us, I guess.

Selection per double-click nicely finds the word without this (terrible)
'overshooting'. But using the keyboard shift+ctrl+right you select also all
white-space characters until the next word. So both variants are available
(while Word has only one and does always overshoot).

Select not by cursor/keyboard but depending on style or properties sounds to me
as out of scope. If you want to change the appearance of text at many places,
unclear positions etc. you should use the character style.

So putting all together it WFM perfectly and we shouldn't copycat all Microsoft
