Description Josh Triplett 2022-07-09 18:42:28 UTC
I often need to paste multiple lines of text into multiple rows of cells in a Writer table. Currently, in order to do so, I open Calc, paste there (which brings up a dialog that lets me split the paste across multiple rows), and then copy the resulting cells and paste into Writer. I'd like to have the same functionality when pasting directly into Writer.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a Writer table with multiple rows.
2. Copy multiple lines of text. For instance, use `seq 1 10` in a terminal and copy the resulting 10 lines.
3. Paste into a cell of the Writer table.

Actual Results:
All of the lines ended up in one table cell.

Expected Results:
The lines should be spread across multiple rows, one row per line.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

OpenGL enabled: Yes

(Note: the Version selection above didn't offer and required a selection.)
