I am trying to paste Hex values copied from Firefox (using WebDeveloper "Inspect Element") to a LibreOffice Writer document's table cell. When I paste the Hex value into the value box, LireOffice consistently throws the following error:
"The inserted text exceeded the maximum length of this text field. The text was truncated."
I am pasting six digits, no leading #. For example, I paste FFB369 (or any six-digit value) into the Hex value box, LO throws the error and in the value box I find "b00000".
Verifying the copy/paste information is correct, I pasted the Hex value in the document itself and copied the freshly-pasted value from the document. When pasted into the value box LO throws the same error with the same result, "b00000".
Also, when entering the value by hand, LO lags in accepting typed data. Unless typed slowly, "ffb369" becomes "fb3690".
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Copy a valid six-digit Hex value from any source
2. Choose a cell in a Writer table and right-click "Properties..."
3. Paste the value into the Hex value box.
LibreOffice Writer throws the error "The inserted text exceeded the maximum length of this text field. The text was truncated." Value automatically entered in the Hex value box is consistently "b00000".
The pasted value should have been accepted, no error message.

I reproduced this case on Linux Manjaro, but it depends on the way you select the existing Hex value: if you select the whole text from right to left with the mouse (for instance), this will bring the error message.
Now if you select the existing value from Tab, or from double click, or even from left to right, it works.

I see so strange behavior in HEX field => I can't delete current value and I just select all symbols and replaced it to new value from the clipboard. May be it is the problem here?
Someone please retest it too

Retested. Results: LO still throws the same error, "The inserted text exceeded the maximum length of this text field. The text was truncated.", BUT the Hex # textbox accepts the pasted hex value instead of defaulting to an incorrect "b000000".
Regarding the text entry lag, this bug no longer exists; text is accepted normally.

Can't replicate: Values in the Hex # text field are fully editable/erasable.
