When cutting and pasting from Office 365 Word docx document to a LibreOffice template only works part of the time. Using mouse right click and copy from menu results in no paste options available in LibreOffice. Using Control+C from the keyboard on highlighted docx text results in no paste options available. Using Control+C followed by Control+Y will intermittently allow pasting in LibreOffice document
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Office 365 Word docx document
2. Highlight text to be coppied with mouse
3. Right click highlighted text in Word 365 and select copy
4. click placement position in LibreOffice Writer document and right click mouse.
Paste function is grey and Paste Special = No Options Available
Past function should be black and Paste Special should allow selection between formatting

The problem has continued to persist through both Windows 10 Pro x64 updates, Office 365 updates and newer versions of LibreOffice. Cutting from pages displayed in either Edge or Internet Explorer paste as normal within LibreOffice Writer. However, when cutting and pasting from a Word docx document in Office 365 to a LibreOffice template or document it is extremely rare that I am able to paste the content from the clipboard.
Procedures used when bug occurs:
Using the mouse to highlight text in Office 365 document and right clicking on the mouse allows "copy" from the drop down menu to place data on clipboard...This was tested by replicating the copied material in the document from which it was coppied. However, right clicking the point of entry in a LibreOffice Writer dcoumnet results in "paste" being greyed out and, if selected, displays "no paste options available."
Using Control+C from the keyboard on highlighted docx text to place the information on the clipboard and right clicking on the mouse in LibreOffice Writer again results "paste" being greyed out and, if selected, displays "no paste options available."
Using Control+C to copy highlighted text within the docx text followed by Control+Y at the selected point of entry in a Writer document will function properly a maximum of three times within Writer document. Additionally, selecting "edit" from the menue results in "Paste" being greyed out in the drop down menu.
I currently have two different computers, both with the same operating system, same version of Office 365 and, same version of Libre Office installed. The computers each have different 64-bit microprocessors and different memory configurations. However, both systems are experiencing the same issues.
FYI the cut and paste works flawlessly between docx and WordPerfect so it is not a clipboard incompatibility.
Open GL and Open CL are both functional.
Both computers are configured as follows
current Operating System is Windows 10 Pro x64 ver. 16.0.17134 Build 17134
Office 365 version is 16.0.11029.20108
LibreOffice version is 184.108.40.206
Memory on one system has an I3 processor and 4-GB memory the other has and I5 processor and 8-GB of memory.
If any additional information is needed, please state specifically what information you need.
