field losing formatting on copying

Good catch. The textsize also changes from 9 to 11 (actually the effective
textsize).

I think I see why this is happening and Dar touched on it in an earlier
post.  The label field and its owning groups have a blank textsize in the
rawforms stack but the rawforms stack has its textsize set to 9.  The mcp
stack on the other hand has an empty textsize so it defaults to 11which
also causes the textheight to change.

Set the text size of the mcp stack to 9 and all should work fine.
