Description zexcel 2019-09-23 00:46:52 UTC
It is well known that the layout of a file looks different between LO and MS office. However, it also changes even when copy/pasted on the same machine, unexpected, as shown in attachments.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.copy: Ctrl+a -> Ctrl+c
2.paste to a new file: Ctrl+n -> Ctrl+v

Actual Results:
The pasted part looks different from its original.

Expected Results:
The pasted part should be the same as its original.

Reproducible: Always

LO need a normalization function somewhere to drop all uncopiable factors, no matter where they come from historically.

Hello zexcel,
How the file attached was created? Using LibreOffice, or MSO? Which version ?
Comment 5 zexcel 2019-10-03 23:19:04 UTC
I don't know the detail.
The original file was attached in an email to me, a doc file. I met problem to work with LibreWriter. 
I checked the file's properties, there is a date of printed history in 2013, no any version related information.
