Description xordevoreaux 2018-05-27 14:01:09 UTC
Ctl+Alt+Shift+V should paste in a comment when cursor is active in a comment field. Currently, even if the cursor is blinking in a comment, pressing the key commands to paste unformatted text places the text in the body of the document rather than the comment.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open writer
2. Type text
3. Copy the text
4. Insert a comment, keep cursor blinking in the comment
5. Press ctrl+alt+shift+v

Actual Results:  
Text appears in body of text

Expected Results:
Text should appear in comment.

Reproducible: Always
