(Ctrl+C from LO 3.3.2 Writer)->(Ctrl+V in LO 3.3.2 Impress)

Hi! My name is Alex. I'm from Russia. I moved to LibreOffice. Encountered the following problem: copy the Russian text (Ctrl+C) from LibreOffice Writer and paste (Ctrl+V) in LibreOffice Impress problems with encoding. With English text is all right. The problem appeared to OS Windows XP (RUS) SP3.

Tried on Ubuntu. Everything works fine.

The fact that I have found a partial solution to the
problem. By default,LO Writer font is Times New Roman. In LO Impress default
is Arial.
If you copy from LO Writer, install it the font Arial, the problem arises from
time to timewith the coding!
Do you have ideas to fix this??
Problem version "LibrOffice 3.3.2 OOO330m19 (Build: 202) tag

In version "LibrOffice 3.3.1 OOO330m19 (Build: 8) tag
libreoffice-" appeared the same problem!

Help solve the problem!!

This bug was filed before the changes to Bugzilla on 2011-10-16. Thus it
started right out as NEW without ever being explicitly confirmed. The bug is
changed to state NEEDINFO for this reason. To move this bug from NEEDINFO back
to NEW please check if the bug still persists with the 3.5.0 beta1 or beta2 prereleases.

Comment 4 sasha.libreoffice 2012-02-27 06:28:48 UTC
Reproduced in 3.5.0 beta 3 on Windows XP 32bit
To reproduce problem copy non-latin text in Writer and place cursor into existing frame in Imprass, then paste.
Problem appears only when copy from Writer.
IMHO problem exist not only with Cyrillic text. But to reproduce problem we should use the same language that Windows locale is. For example, if Windows locale is Chinese, then we should use Chinese to reproduce this problem.
IMHO Writer not provides information about language in Clipboard. (Writer uses DOS (OEM) encoding for place text into Clipboard.)
Comment 5 sasha.libreoffice 2012-02-27 06:34:35 UTC
With pasting into Calc and Draw also problem
In Calc in formula line text appears correct, but in cell text is wrong
In Draw when just paste text, appears frame with correct text, but if place cursor there and paste text, text encoding is wrong.

Comment 10 Roman Eisele 2012-05-03 10:20:55 UTC
Summary modified according to comment #5 (not only Writer is affected!) and comment #6 (a Windows-specific problem). Also tried to improve style.

If the summary is now too short/unspecific, please improve it if you can ;-)
Comment 11 Roman Eisele 2012-05-03 10:23:54 UTC
Oh, sorry, I can improve the summary myself once more! I must have overseen comment #4: problem occurs only when pasting text copied from Writer.
