|Java syntax highlighting does not persist on IDE restart [message #1768558]

I am using latest 4.7.0 Oxygen, Java IDE, on Windows 10, 64-bit.
Oracle JDK 1.8 build 141 (latest).
I selected Dark Theme.
I changed the font size from a default 10 (too small to see) to a larger size 14, the same font as default (Consolas).
Once this is done not only the text size gets larger as expected but the various Java syntax objects such as Class Names get BOLD (such as System and String).
So I go into Java editor syntax highlighting preferences and I tick-off all BOLD settings from all Java elements.
This works just fine but only for the current session of Eclipse.
Once I re-start Eclipse IDE the BOLD for Class Names (and some other elements) returns.
If I do not change the text font size from its default size 10 then it seems not to do this.
I did some digging and the preferences are stored here:
I verified they are updated by Eclipse when I make visual changes.
I copied the file to another folder to I can compared it.
Then when I re-start Eclipse it wipes off my preferences with a new file which does not keep my preferences beyond just font name and font size.
So the Bold settings for Java elements are not kept.
What am I doing wrong?
What can I do to make it keep my preferences?
