Description Raúl Márquez Garza 2017-09-05 09:00:32 UTC
When I am working at Writer, everything is going fine. I can copy and paste with no problem.

I use to paste unformatfed text comming from websites, however after a while, the option Paste → Unfformatted Text dissapears on Writer.

No matter if I go to the Menu Edit→Paste Special or if I try to use the shortkey method Ctrl+Alt+Shit+V, no one of those options are available.

I have to close the document, and open it again in order to be able of using again the option Paste unformatted text.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start a new document on writer.
2.Go to any website, select text and copy.
3.Past the selected text on writer.
4.Repeat steps since number 2 on new websites and the problem will arrive.

Actual Results:  
It's not possible paste unformatted text.

Expected Results:
To be able to paste unformatted text.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
Sorry about my bad english. My language is spanish.

I can't reproduce it with LO I know four possibilities to paste an unformatted text:
a) Menu: Edit -> Paste Unformatted text
b) Toolbar: Paste Icon -> Unformatted text
c) Context menu: Paste specia -> Unformatted text
d) Shortkey: Ctrl+Alt+Shift+V

Does it happen to you in all those cases (you only mention method a and d?
Comment 2 Raúl Márquez Garza 2017-09-07 17:48:25 UTC
Yes, it does. None of the above appear, however I'm using LO

Anyway, the very same bug has been present since previous releases, maybe 3.5s included.

Can you test with a new profile? I never noticed such behaviour.
