U4-8411 - RTE custom styles/formats not loading on existing fields

Your report will have a greater chance of being addressed if you can give us clear steps to reproduce the issue, please answer the following questions in as much detail as possible: What did you do?

I went through the steps of creating custom styles in a stylesheet and linking the RTE to the stylesheet as described here: http://umbraco.tv/videos/umbraco-v7/implementor/fundamentals/stylesheets-and-javascript/setting-up-rte-styles/documentation/

What did you expect to happen?

I expected existing fields based on the RTE to show the new styles in the "Formats" dropdown

What actually happened?

Existing RTE fields did not show the new styles. New fields created with the RTE did show the styles.

Noted - going back into the rte property on the document type I can see that the stylesheet is not selected, so propagation being not a feature is the issue here.

I'd still expect changes to the RTE control from developer settings to be global. I shouldn't have to go into each property and update it manually.
