Default Format Painter

Why is it if I use the Format Painter trying to copy formatting from a
Heading1 style to another paragraph, the target paragraph assumes the
correct formatting, but the paragraph that I copied from loses its
formatting? Specifically, the paragraph copied from had a hanging
indent at 0.5 and no tabs, but now has no indent and a tab at 0.25.

It seems to work fine here. Please describe the steps to reproduce the issue.
