Description Yifan Jiang 2013-01-14 05:57:15 UTC
I am transferring a bug from:



A graphic from geogebra written to the clipboard can't be pasted into LO writer
or LO draw. LO does nothing.
When I paste into LO draw with Shift-Ctr-V, a dialog box appears with the hint:
"Unbekannte Quelle" (Unknown Source).

Hint 1: Gimp can paste the Geogebra graphic from clipboard without problems.

Hint 2:
This is an old bug that is also present under Ubuntu 12.04 (Unity!) with LO
Under Windows (XP or 7) LO pastes nomally.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Copy a graphic to clipboard in Geogebra.
2. Try to paste it into a writer or draw document.
3. Nothing happens.
Actual Results:  
Nothing pasted on the LO document.

And I can confirm this is a problem :)

For me not reproducible with LO, Win 8.1.

If I copy a graphic from GeoGebra 4.4, then it is copied to WRITER and DRAW.
To copy it in GeoGebra you need to go to EDIT -> GRAPHICS VIEW TO CLIPBOARD.  It works as in GIMP 2.8.10.

Can anybody confirm that this issue still persists?  Otherwise, I would propose to close it.

Image format svg and png work fine for me with GeoGebra 5.0 and LibreOffice 5.2. The image formats eps and emf do not work, but I doubt, that GeoGebra produces valid content in this cases.

Unfortunately I do not have access to original bug report. 
Is it possible to paste more files to this bug report?

Without that I cannot help much.
Comment 9 Bartosz 2021-04-15 06:42:09 UTC
The EMF file (after importing to LibreOffice) would be enough to investigate the issue, and find solution for it.

please update to new stable version 7.1
