Description sasha.libreoffice 2011-02-28 04:59:58 UTC
On Linux when in Krusader, Konqueror or Dolphin select picture and press Ctrl-C and in Calc in cell Ctrl-V, then filename of picture inserts.
On windows when in Total comander or Explorer select picture and press Ctrl-C and in Calc in cell Ctrl-V, then nothing happens. In Excel 2003 also nothing happens.
All other component of Libreoffice work ok on both platforms.

Used LibreOffice Mandriva 64 bit Kde 4.4 and windows xp 32 bit

Kohei, is it by design or simply a bug? Potentially an easy hack. Don't hesitate to reassign if needed.
Comment 2 Kohei Yoshida 2011-02-28 08:00:33 UTC
It's probably neither; it's a "limitation" or unimplemented feature.
Comment 3 Kohei Yoshida 2011-02-28 08:02:38 UTC
OTOH, if it doesn't work with Excel, there may be something specific about how Explorer handles pictures.

It does not work, but is it a bug or an unimplemented function (comment #2) ?
Is there a version with which it was possible to do that ? If not I suggest to change importance to enhancement.

Set status to NEEDINFO.

Best regards. JBF
