NOT reproducible with "LibreOffice 3.5.0 RC3 German UI/Locale [Build-ID: 7e68ba2-a744ebf-1f241b7-c506db1-7d53735] on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) 

May I ask you to read  hints on <http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/BugReport>?
Then please:
- Write a meaningful Summary describing exactly what the problem is
- Attach 2 sample documents WRITER, CALC result (not only screenshot)
- Attach screenshots with comments if you believe that that might explain the 
  problem better than a text comment. Best way is to insert your screenshots
  into a DRAW document and to add comments that explain what you want to show
- Contribute a step by step instruction containing every key press and every 
  mouse click how to reproduce your problem, starting with "Start LibO from 
  WIN Start center"
– if possible contribute an instruction how to created a sample document 
  from the scratch
- add information 
  -- what EXACTLY is unexpected
  -- and WHY do you believe it's unexpected (cite Help or Documentation!)
  -- concerning your PC (video card, ...)
  -- concerning your OS (Version, Distribution, Language)
  -- concerning your LibO version and localization (UI language, Locale setting)
  –- Libo settings that might be related to your problems 
    (video hardware acceleration ...)
  -- how you launch LibO and how you opened the sample document
  -- everything else crossing your mind after you read linked texts

Thanks for bugreport. It will help us.

Reproduced in 3.5.0 on Fedora 64 bit and Windows XP 32 bit
but not reproducible in 3.4, therefore regression
Steps to reproduce:
0. Start Writer
1. Insert->Header->Default, put some text in header
2. Write some text inside of document
3. Select text in document, press Ctrl-C
4. Start Calc
5. on Linux press Ctrl-V
   on Windows press Ctrl-Shift-V and select "Formatted rtf"
Expected: selected text inserted into cell
Actually: into cell inserted content of header, selected text inserted into next to bottom cell

This sounds like it should be fixed by the same fix for bug #46038, i.e. to fix that bug we don't include the "page styles" in the temp document we use to generate the rtf from, and this bug sounds like that the rtf import part of the paste into calc doesn't understand the "header text in page styles" stuff, which isn't surprising as that's an illadvised extension to rtf.

If I'm wrong, and this is still reproducible with 3.5.1, reopen and assign it to me.
