I've had this problem in previous versions of Studio as well (I'm using the latest now) and asked Paul Filkin about it a few years ago at Zagreb Conference, however, I wasn't able to produce on-spot evidence of this issue. I've now managed to film this and put in on my YT channel (excuse poor quality), and am kindly asking for some explanation or turn-around. TIA.

This is related to your tags. Unfortunately, your video doesn't show the source column completely, are the tags shown in your target segment also present in the source?

Tags - I don't believe they cause the issue Feb 17, 2017

Hello and thank you for your reply. I have actually copied the source contents into target and the issue occurred in this part of the segment, as shown in my video. I tried inserting tags as I was translating and it was the same.

Formatting display style Feb 17, 2017

It looks like you're working with known formatting tags hidden, what happens if you change to Show all formatting and tags under Options - Editor - Formatting display style?

Unprovoked font change at the beginning of a new segment Feb 18, 2017

I have now filmed the situation when everything goes normally until I start working in a new segment and obviously don't insert any tags or make any formatting commands and the font is completely different from source. Please take a look and comment, thanks.

This is what Nora asked you to do.
Another option is to copy source to target and put cursor to the next place after the first sign. Start typing _after_ the first sign/letter. If the font type does not differ from the source now, it means there are some invisible tags before the first sign/letter. You cannot see them but they still exist. To see them all, see the screenshot above.
Don't ask me why they did so =)
