Description Valentin 2017-04-05 13:14:32 UTC
When saving a Writer document, I can paste (CMD+V) buffered english text as a filename, if Russian keyboard layout is on. When keyboard switched to English, CMD+V works!

A little but very annoing situation, especially for people who use Russian layout as a default.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Hello Valentin,

Thank you for reporting the bug. To be certain the reported issue is not related to corruption in the user profile, could you please reset your Libreoffice profile ( https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/UserProfile ) and re-test?

I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to 'UNCONFIRMED' if the issue is still present

@Valentin : can you please provide more detailed steps as to what you are doing :

1) Are you using LibreOffice with a Russian language interface or the default EN-us interface - in other words, did you install the RU langpack ?

2) What is the OSX system keyboard setting you are using - Russian or EN  ?

3) Which application are you pasting EN buffer text from ? Firefox, or some other application or the Finder or what ?
Comment 4 Alex Thurgood 2017-04-07 09:00:13 UTC
OK, so what I can confirm is the following :

1) I set the OSX keyboard setting to Russian.

2) I selected a filename in Latin characters from a file on my desktop and copied it into the system copy buffer (Cmd-C)

3) I started LibreOffice which on my system has the FR langpack installed (Latin character locale).

4) I created a new Writer document and typed some Russian characters into it.

5) I attempted to save the document by clicking on the Save icon.

6) A Finder dialog is displayed in which the Unnamed temporary file name is already highlighted.

7) I attempted to paste the English (Latin character) filename from the system copy buffer - I see the Edit menu highlighted briefly, but nothing else happens, the filename isn't copied over the selected character string in the Finder dialog.

If I repeat the whole procedure from the beginning, but change the keyboard back to FR, then the paste operation in step 7 succeeds.
