Is there a button after "Version:" in your Help > About LibreOffice dialog?  Press that button and the version information text will be copied to the system clipboard.
Comment 2 Paolo Benvenuto 2021-09-02 22:07:23 UTC
yes, I see the copy button.

Then, the bug would be that the button, with only an icon, isn't so much understandable.

A "copy to clipboard" text would be better

It's not "only an icon", there is a tooltip that explains what it does if you hover your mouse cursor over the button.

But sure, let's change summary accordingly and see what the developers say.
