When copying text from the internet I am finding that the paste special function is often not available. I have tried CTRL+SHIFT+V as well as the menu option (it is greyed out) but nothing works. If I keep re-highlighting the text and trying again and again, eventually I can get it to work. This has only just started happening since the latest update. I am having the same issue with 2 separate computers.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Drag mouse to select internet text
2.ALT+TAB to switch to LibreOffice (Calc,Impress,Writer all have the same issue)
The menu to select how the paste special should work does not appear. The menu option to paste special is greyed out.
A menu should appear asking you how the paste special should be performed

To add another problem that I have regularly, but cannot describe:
copy & paste in a spreadsheet, now and then pastes an image of a cell, rather then the cell (contents). Copying again, always solves the issue
(Sorry Glen to hijack your report ;) )

Rule of thumb is search before reporting. Of you did, you'd find many paste bugs like https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=65606 and https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=99818.

Normally I would but I found the interface here not to be particularly user friendly. I'm not a techie but I did look for a list of known bugs etc. Couldn't find it.
Apologies for the duplication.

Thanks for apologizing Glen.
Possibly with a little exercise searching is doable.
( Having said that: I should have more reasons to apologize, since I should have looked for a report for my own complaint..)
