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 :)
Comment 2 A (Andy) 2015-02-06 21:44:07 UTC
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.

Dear Yifan Jiang,

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 with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

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) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

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
