Description:
Request Feature: To be able to add "Paste Special" choices as stand alone choices to context menu ("right click menu") in Libreoffice6.2

Because I copy/paste a lot from Calc., I need to do this sequence of actions in order to copy/paste tables from Calc:

(a) Right click to appear context menu
(b) To choose "paste special" -> "More Options"
(c) To choose e.g. "Rich Text Formatting (RTF)"
(d) To press "OK"

A better Scenario:
(a) Right click to appear context menu
(b) To choose "Rich Text Formatting (RTF)"
-Done.

Sincerely,
Elias Tsolis

Useful, but tot clear this is feasible. Entries available to the Paste Special dialog are dynamic and depend on the content as parsed from system clipboard.

Would be a lot of dev effort working out a dynamic context menu mechanism for what is a valid but marginal use case. In other words, the current implementation of Unformatted text as default, and the dynamic More options dialog is reasonable extent of UX.

IMHO => WF

Fully agree. Let's have the developers take a look.
