Description ChrisAIX 2016-11-18 16:36:27 UTC
Wheny trying to copy & paste formatted / coloured text into writer it will be pasted as plain text. Also paste special (via right mouse click) does not show RTF selection item.

This issue arises only in writer v5.2.x (I tested release versions: 5.2.2 and 5.2.3)

In v 5.1.6 everything works fine.
I've tested it on Windows 7 + 10 with the same result.

Source programs:

*    IBM Notes (Lotus Notes) --> copy from a mail
*    SQuirrel (http://squirrel-sql.sourceforge.net/)
        --> SQL Editor > right mouse button -> Copy in RTF 
            - this should paste coloured text and preformatted text type  - but it will be pasted default style as plain text.

Pasting in Writer v5.2.x is always plain (unformatted) text - special paste does not show the RTF field (as it will shown in LO v5.1.6 and in old OpenOffice)

Confirmed with / Windows 7. Works fine in => regression

I used WordPad, set a piece of text red, then copied it, and tried to paste it in Writer. In there's "Formatted text (RTF)" option in Paste Special dialog, since that option is missing.

Also on linux when coming text from 5.1.5 to master.

Created attachment 128966 [details]
details of bibisect within win32-5.2 repository

For testing I did the following ...
(*) In WordPad, created a .rtf with two paragraphs, one in Arial 10 point.
(*) In WordPad, select the whole document and Copy.
(*) In LibreOffice, Paste, variously by <Ctrl>+V, <Ctrl>+<Shift>+V,
    <Alt>+E P.  Only <Ctrl>+Shift+V offered the "Paste Special" dialog
    with a selection what to paste.  When that dialog offered
    "Formatted text [RTF]", all ways of pasting pasted with the fonts
    from the copy-from document.  Otherwise, all ways of pasting
    pasted in Liberation Serif 12 point.

Working on Windows Vista in the win32-5.2 bibisect repository I see ...

I am removing keyword bibisectRequest and adding bisected.

Hi Terrence,
thanks for bisecting this bug, it looks like a duplicate of bug 101828 as it's the same commit that introduced both bugs

*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 101828 ***
Comment 6 ChrisAIX 2016-12-27 10:32:25 UTC
Is there a chance to get this bug fixed either in 5.2.x or 5.3.x ?

I mean - an Office Program that is not able to cut & paste anything else than pure plain text does not really make sense - or am I wrong?

This bug has not been been fixed in latest version (5.2.4.x).

Any Comments?
