Description Cheng-Chia Tseng 2011-08-06 19:55:22 UTC
I am using Chinese (Traditional), zh-TW environment.

If I type some Chinese characters in Writer, then use Ctrl+C to copy and use Ctrl+V to paste in Impress, those characters have been converted into something I cannot read.

For example, "LibreOffice 又棒又好用。" will be "LibreOffice ¤S´Î¤S¦n¥Î¡C" in Impress.

This issuse might impact all LibreOffice products in Windows. 

If you copy text in Base into Writer, and it can be reproduced too. See https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=37859 for details.

On windows XP 32bit LibO 3.4 russian language this problem also exist.
But what it interesting: when I copy text from Writer by Ctrl+V and paste it in Calc, this problem disappears until next start of LibreOffice. (into Calc it pastes as OLE object).

The bug still lives in Dev 3.5.
Comment 4 A (Andy) 2013-03-24 10:40:29 UTC
not reproducible with LO (Win7 Home, 64bit)

Does this issue still persist for you with the latest release of LO?

@Sasha: Do you also still have this problem or is it in the meantime already resolved so that we can close it?

Not reproducible in 4.0.0 and 4.0.1 on Win XP 32 bit with Cyrillic characters

@  Cheng-Chia Tseng
Please, verify with Chinese characters
Comment 6 Cheng-Chia Tseng 2013-03-25 09:13:20 UTC
Sorry for being late to test. :P

4.0 and 4.1 on XP 32-bit tested, not reporducible with Chinese.

Maybe we can close this one now. :) 

As we don't know what fixes this issue, I set it to Resolved as Invalid. If it is not appropriate, then please correct it freely.
Comment 7 Cheng-Chia Tseng 2013-03-25 09:20:26 UTC
To correct Comment 6, 

4.0 and 4.1 => 4.0.0 and 4.0.1

Plus, I found it better to set as Resolved as Worksforme. So changed.
