Toggling bold and highlight not working together

Steps to reproduce

  1. Write some text.
  2. Use Toggle highlight to highlight the text.
  3. Now use toggle bold on the same selection to additionally make the font bold.

Expected result

The text should now be highlighted and bold.

Actual result

Toggle bold removes the highlighting instead of giving bold font.
Note: This also works in the other direction. So if you have bold text and then use toggle highlight, it will remove the bold font instead of highlighting the text.
