Description hpvoelpel 2019-08-16 12:52:59 UTC
Description:
When copying from a spreadsheet with Autofilter active, and pasting into a Writer document in RTF (Edit/Paste Special), the filters are ignored and the unfiltered contents of the selection are pasted. Pasting unformatted text works as expected.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use some autofilter on a Calc table.
2. Select the filtered contents
3. Copy the selection
4. Paste into a Writer dodument as RTF

Actual Results:
The filters are ignored, the complete contents of the table are inserted, including the filtered out lines.

Expected Results:
Only the filtered (visible) contents should be pasted. 
Pasting unformatted text works as expected.


Reproducible: Always
