Description John Bester 2018-10-04 11:28:29 UTC
Selecting text in export configuration setting and then using paste (Ctrl+V) to replace the text does not replace, but append.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Navigate to Options / Advanced Options/ Open Expert Configuration
2. Search for a numeric setting such as TotalCacheSize
3. Edit the entry, select the value and press Ctrl+C to copy
4. Now open a calculator and calculate value * 2
5. Select the calculated value from calculator
6. Make sure the text is still selected in LO setting box
7. Select the calculated value from calculator and paste into LO setting box

Actual Results:
The value is appended to the original value which causes text length exceeded message

Expected Results:
If the value in the text box was selected, the value should be overwritten when you paste

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Confirm it, the value from Configuration expert it is not selected anymore, it is just a cursor after the value, so when someone wants to paste a new value, it is not replacing but it is pasteing after the initial value.
