Description kaesezeh 2011-10-21 08:38:09 UTC
I have the following very annoying little issue: I want to copy and paste something from a website into a LibreOffice document but as unformatted text (to get rid of all sorts of formatting and hyperlinks and to make things fit into my template immediately). So I copy something from Firefox (7.01) (on Linux Mint 11 64 bit without Glipper or similar clipboard managers), go to LibreOffice Writer (3.3.4) and do CTRL+SHIFT+V (or go to Edit: Paste special) and nothing happens. The stuff is still in the clipboard because I can paste it with CTRL-V, but I can't do the CTRL+SHIFT+V. So I always need to open Geany paste it in there, copy it again, paste it into LibreOffice, close Geany, ... This can't be what a text processing software in 2011 needs me to do ... Any hints?
