Description Michael Bauer 2021-04-12 14:14:17 UTC
Select some text (doesn't have to be long, in my case it's usually PO numbers like J40279-2 / PB10258) in Microsoft Word. Now try to Ctrl-V that into Calc. Nothing happens.
If I paste the same text into Notepad++ first and the from Notepad++ into Calc, it inserts the text.
Why is Calc so shite at pasting stuff from other programs? This is very reminiscent of Bug 113719 (which is still broken 4 years on).

Actual Results:
Nothing happens

Expected Results:
Paste the stuff on the clipboard

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

For me with 7.1.3
[Ctrl+V] pastes it as image.
[F2]+[Ctrl+V] pastes it with the original text format
Pasting in the 'input line' pastes it as text without format.
