I can copy the text from the Bible Study software to a browser edit field or notepad, then copy that to LibreOffice Writer but not directly.

I would like to reproduce the problem that you have, but I don't have the Bible Study software and I don't have OliveTree either. I tried it with a few other programs that I have, but they all worked fine.

Can you try to copy and paste from the various programs that you have and let us know in which cases the copy and paste doesn't work? If you can first try the programs that come with Windows, or that we find on most Windows installations, that's ideal, because many other volunteers will have those too.

I'm running Linux/Debian10 and it comes with different programs. That's why I may not be able to help, but with the programs that you mention it will be easier for others here to reproduce your problem. In other words, I'm trying to speed up the process. ;-) 

If you have added the names of a few programs, please set the status back to "unconfirmed".

PS: I'm not a developer. I'm a user myself and I submitted a few bug reports. I'm trying to confirm the bugs that other people report here.

There are many paste bugs already open. 
This one is probably duplicate, reporter should have searched before reporting.
