Copy and paste between scenes loses formatting for first paragraph.

Version 64 bit.
When cutting a scene or a number of paragraphs and pasting them into a fresh scene the initial paragraph loses its indentation and goes to single spacing. The font type remained correct. In some cases the indent on the second paragraph was lost and the font size dropped to 10 pt. The original font was Old Bookman, size was 14, and the spacing 1.5x. Old Bookman in that size and spacing is set as the default for the whole document.
