[Reproducible] with "LibreOffice" German UI/ German Locale [Build-ID: 58f22d5] on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) 

Inherited from OOo, I never saw that working back until OOo 1.1.5

Not a big thing, but at least inconsistent, in WRITER the text calculation formula bar has that context menu function.

One for you?

The Formula Input line field already responds to OS clipboard and the main menu Edit -> Select, Cut, Copy, Paste all connect to the control.

So, would expect should be able create the context menu controls which would be helpful.
