When copying and pasting data from Calc into Writer, the default paste behaviour is to paste what seems like a Calc8 object. It would be really productive if the default order of paste special options would be configurable. It seems that the top option is what is used for normal/simple Paste. If one would be able to change the order of the list - the default Paste behaviour could be altered.
A little bit of background. I have some clients who make heavy use of copying and pasting from spreadsheets into text documents. The default behaviour of The Other Office suite is to paste spreadsheet data as a table when pasting into a text document. These clients make heavy use of this feature - enough to have to switch back The Other Office Suite as it was slowing down the workflow significantly as they needed to go through the Paste Special option every time in LibreOffice.
a quick way is selecting clicking the arrow on the right of the paste icon.
Thanks mariosv. I suppose clicking on the arrow next to the Paste button is quicker than going through the Edit menu. However, having to click on a button for paste operations is still too slow an option for power users.
I think you can record a macro and assign it to a button and/or a shortcut.
In any way, I thinks this is a request for enhancement.
Please change the importance status from normal to enhancement.
Set to enhancement.
Thanks and sorry - I should have set it as enhancement from the beginning
