Description Bartosz Skowron 2013-09-03 23:39:04 UTC
If you go to any article at WikiTravel, e.g. http://wikitravel.org/en/Burma then select all text (simple ctrl+a) and copy it. When you try to paste it to vim or TextEdit - works fine.

If you try to paste it to LibreOffice or OpenOffice you get only some traces from additional frames, no main text at all. The problem is only when copying from Firefox, it works fine for Safari.

However, there is a workaround. Switch to Web Layout and then paste and then the whole text is pasted. You can even switch back to Print Layout and it's ok then.

The same issue also for "printable version" of the wiki's articles.

Thanks for bugreport
Reproduced in 4.1 on Fedora (RFR) 64 bit
Copied from Firefox (JS enabled) and Konqueror (JS and plugins disabled)

IMHO Writer can not parse something inside of HTML.

Somehow the site is now too heavy to handle (Print layout). Importing takes forever and I have to kill LibO.
