This only affects the kde5 VCL plugin.
version: master build as of commit 1f5698ba8b62e62999b0efb363916a91bdd54c94
Steps to reproduce:
1) Open a new writer document and type some text
2) select the text
3) copy the text, e.g. using Ctrl + C
4) open another new Writer document
5) try to paste the text, e.g. using Ctrl + V
Result: Nothing happens.
Expected result: The copied text should be inserted.
The same also happens when trying to copy text from Writer to a non-LibreOffice application and vice versa.
drats, it's indeed not workin' across the documents
The following commits implement copy'n'paste for qt5 frontend:
It ain't perfect, only plain text, HTML and bitmaps are supported. For other data types, pls open new bugs
For now, I've created bug 120624 and bug 120625. I'll do more testing (e.g. copying the whole content of more coplex documents) once those have been addressed.
