Copy text and images from a website using the Safari browser on Mac OS X.
Paste into Blank Writer document.
The text is copied and pasted but images are not.
The images should also be pasted.
Testing with the Chrome browser copies and pastes images.
The images appear to be copied successfully as pasting the same selection into Pages produces the images and text
LibreOffice 3.3.2 build 202 On Mac OS X 10.6.7
That might be a browser problem. I have the same problem. FF (windows) copies and pastes the text and images while opera only copies and pastes text.
Microsoft's Word and Apple's Pages is able to extract the images the from Safari's clipboard. Have also reproduced the same results on another Mac.
Safari Version 5.0.5 (6533.21.1) was used.
Tested with Firefox and this is not a problem, so only with Safari.
Is it possible the Safari (and Opera) stores images differently on the clipboard? Could LibreOffice not be extended to check for that and retrive the images as Microsoft Word is able get the images?

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.
Details on how to test the 3.5.0 beta1 can be found at:

Dear bug submitter!
Due to the fact, that there are a lot of NEEDINFO bugs with no answer within the last six months, we close all of these bugs.
To keep this message short, more infos are available @ https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA/NeedinfoClosure#Statement
Thanks for understanding and hopefully updating your bug, so that everything is prepared for developers to fix your problem.
reproduced in 3.3.4 and 3.6.1 copy-pasting Libreoffice.org from Konqueror on Fedora 64 bit. Biggest picture on right hand side not pasted.
Konqueror, Chrome, Chromium, Safary have the same engine Khtml/WebKit.
So, additional testing on Chrome, Chromium needed
I also can confirm this problem that pictures aren't pasted in writer. I paste the same clipboard to 'Word for Mac 2011' and the pictures are pasted correctly.
Following  I mark this as 'major high'. We can't speak of 'data loss' because the data just isn't there at all. (and saving and reopening the document gives the same result).
Also I mark it as 3.3.0 beta2, following version of bug reporter.
is issue still there with current 4.0.5 or 4.1.1 releases?
Hi tommy27, thanks for the ping.
This is still valid for LO 184.108.40.206 and latest master build on OS X 10.8.5.
Image pasted from Safari does not arrive in LO, but does arrive when e.g. pasted into Word 2010.
Changed summary because this happens in FireFox in a Windows machine too.
BTW the 220.127.116.11 does NOT have this issue. (The issue was there till 4.2.4).
I confirm it works under Win7x64 using 4.3.0 RC1
status --> RESOLVED WORKSFORME
Verified. Thanks to the unknown commit fixing this!
