Please give a brief summary of your issue:

It appears that the quick save references in the toolbar for text annotations does not persist formatting options for Bold, Strikethrough, and Italics.

Please describe your issue and provide steps to reproduce it:

I am able to see the same behavior here JavaScript PDF Viewer Demo, select one of the text annotation quick links in the toolbar (1 of the 4 options), modify the format to be bold/strikethrough/or underline and notice it is not persisted by clicking to a different option and clicking back or by creating a text annotation and noticing the formatting is not applied.
