Description Michael Weghorn 2018-09-06 08:08:26 UTC
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
Comment 3 Michael Weghorn 2018-10-15 16:02:25 UTC

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.
