Description Marco A.G.Pinto 2017-02-11 09:30:00 UTC
I was copying text and images from a MS Word document and, when I attempted to paste them in LO 5.3, I lost the images and the "Paste Special" didn't work either.

Sample of MS Word 2016 .docx

I opened the file with M$ Word 2016 (365) and pressed CTR+A (select all) and then went to LO 5.3 and pressed CTR+V (paste).

All <RET> and the image from the original file got a grey character.

Moments ago, I noticed a "Paste Special -> M$ Word" in LO 5.3 which works okay... does this mean that we now have to select this when copying from M$ Word?

I guess it is recognising the source. If it works for you, then I will close this as WFM.
