When I tried pasting a text into Writer, it gave a message that the "Requested clipboard format is not available".
All I can do is press the "OK" button. This does NOT solve my problem as I still need to paste that piece of text into Writer. I need to paste-copy the text in a notepad like application OR I need to know of the existence of the "Paste special" function.
The possible solutions:
* Ask if the user wants to paste the text without formatting,
* redirect to the "Paste special" dialog,

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:

I have never seen message "Requested clipboard format is not available".
My be it is bug in some program? How can be this reproduced?
I don't know it this is a bug and by now I don't know any more what the source of the copied text was, but it was only with that specific piece of copied text that I had the problem.
My conclusion is that when something is pasted, writer checks the format of what's in the clipboard and if it isn't recognised, gives the error message that I received.
I came across the same behavior while trying to copy a citation from Mendeley desktop to Writer (on Ubuntu 10.10).
Suggested solution sounds good to me :)
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.
The issue is still valid even with LibreOffice 4.1.
A possible way to reproduce the issue is described here - http://bugs.rosalinux.ru/show_bug.cgi?id=1483:
Description of problem:
1. Open speedtest.net in firefox.
2. Choose server and launch test
3. After ending click Share Results and copy URL in the appropriate field
4. You can paste this text into kwrite
5. But if You try paste this text to LibreOffice Writer You get an error (screenshot is attached)
6. You can paste the text only using Klipper
Thanks for additional testing.
In this case problem is in Flash player.
IMHO we should close this bug with status NotOurBug
No it shouldn't be closed yet: the problem is not that the input is bad, it is the way LO handles the problem.
A user doesn't care if flash causes the copied text to have some kind of error in it which makes it unpasteable, he wants it done or at least get an error that helps him a bit further.
"Requested clipboard format is not available" does not suffice, look again to my first post for my suggestion how to solve this.
About comment 9:
not reproducible in LO 3.4 and 3.5 on WinXP 32 bit, Firefox
If it is Linux-specific bug, then please tell me. I will try on Ubuntu.
And, please, tell me Linux analog of clipbrd.exe
(In reply to comment #12)
I tested it and I also couldn't reproduce this on Windows 7 64Bit using version 22.214.171.124 (portableapps version).
I can reproduce the issue (using steps in comment 9) on LO 126.96.36.199 on Ubuntu. I believe the point of comment 13 is that the issue isn't reproducible on Windows, not that the issue isn't reproducible at all. (The previous commenters were fairly clear about this, but I wanted to clarify a bit further.)
I agree with the suggested solutions in comment 0. (Apparently email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org are the same person, per comment 11 and comment 3.)
I searched in the source code:
The symbol for the error message in question is MSG_CLPBRD_FORMAT_ERROR
It appears in

I was trying to reproduce the issue using the steps in comment 9, but couldn't and you're right: I could have been clearer about this.

Hm, seems I registered twice, how silly :p

Thanks! Hopefully this bug report will lead to an improvement :)
Never confirmed by QA team - moving to UNCONFIRMED. Thanks for your patience and understanding.

UX: One for you to triage
Just tried to reproduce this speedtest.net problem and it still exists in LibreOffice 184.108.40.206 on Linux Mint 17.1
If it helps, I think the problem is Linux-specific and it is also Adobe Flash specific.
If so, reports 68765 and 76338 are related. As is the problem I am having using a similar copy-to-clipboard function on https://www.citethisforme.com/ which also uses Adobe Flash. (It used to work on that web site but they changed it a few weeks ago to Flash and it has not worked since.) It just makes LibreOffice say "Requested clipboard format is not available.".
This is a linux only issue as mention in my bug 76338 and this is more of a bug than an enhancement as libreoffice should be picking the correct paste option.
We're replacing our use of the 'ux-advise' component with a keyword:
Component -> LibreOffice
Add Keyword: needsUXEval
If we want to change anything the best is to "improve" the text like "Cannot paste clipboard content."
But NOTOURBUG in my opinion (up to QA/Dev).
** Please read this message in its entirety before responding **
To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.
There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.
If you have time, please do the following:
Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/
If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
Please DO NOT
Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not
appropriate in this case)
If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from http://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/
2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
