This is how to do it:

1- create a new empty file and open it
2- write abc
3- change its face to bold and its foreground color to blue
4- type enter to return to line
5- type M-o d to choose the default face
6- write def and type enter
You should get this:

7- but after saving the file, and reopening it, I get this:

As you can see, the second line becomes bold too. When I open the enriched text file in raw text mode, I find this:

Content-Type: text/enriched
Text-Width: 70




I tested this on Windows 10, but I get the same problem with Debian too. I also used the command emacs -q to ignore my .emacs file and start an out-of-the-box verion of emacs.

This is my M-x emacs-verion on Windows:
GNU Emacs 26.1 (build 1, x86_64-w64-mingw32) of 2018-05-30
