Sample file with table

Version: 6.2.0.0.alpha0+
Build ID: ba6723431afa843232fadf44e12ddab44e85c9f0
CPU threads: 4; OS: Linux 4.18; UI render: default; VCL: kde5; 
Locale: en-GB (en_GB.UTF-8); Calc: threaded

This is specific to the qt5/kde5 VCL plugin. It works as expected when using e.g. the gtk3 VCL plugin instead.

Steps to reproduce:

1) open attached document "sample_table.odt" in Writer
2) select all document content (e.g. by pressing Ctrl+A)
3) Copy (Ctrl+C)
4) create a new Writer document (e.g. by pressing Ctrl+N)
5) paste (e.g. by pressing Ctrl+V)

Result: The table from the original document is inserted, but the formatting is a bit different from what it's like in the original document (e.g. line height differs).

Expected result: The table's formatting should be the same as in the original document.

Definitely, it's much better than before!
And I'm also very happy I can easily copy the version information from "About" -> "Help" for any new bug reports now, which wasn't possible a while ago. :)

Seems to have been fixed in the meantime. I can no longer reproduce with
