Comment 2 sasha.libreoffice 2012-06-12 03:49:03 UTC
Thanks for bugreport
reproduced in 3.3.4 and 3.5.4 on Fedora 64 bit (Windows not tested)
while copy-pasting to Impress, vertical alignment and cell merging are lost

Possible workaround: use Ctrl-Shift-V (Edit->Paste special) for pasting. Select there "LibreOffice 3.5 text document". Then double click resulting OLE and adjust size (grey rectangle with black dots).

Changing version to 3.3.4 as most early reproduced
Comment 3 A (Andy) 2013-04-26 20:05:03 UTC
reproducible with LO (Win7 Home, 64bit)

in addition, the width of the second column is strongly narrowed

** 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 on a currently supported version of LibreOffice (4.4.1 or later)

   *If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior
   *If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a short comment that includes your version of LibreOffice and Operating System

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)


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
