Description vlhown 2014-01-20 07:46:05 UTC
Created attachment 92425 [details]

Bug modelling:
1. In Calc copy arbitrary range with merged cells.
2. Paste it as formatted text (RTF) to Writer - mergings are lost.

Tested on LO, rc Ubuntu 13.10, LO Windows XP.
LO 3.x pastes correctly.

The severity is assigned to critical becаuse pasting as formatted text is the only way to transfer formatted tables from Calc to Writer not as OLE-object.

What I see in LibO on Win7, when pasting in Writer as RTF a Calc range with merged cells :
- the merging is correctly pasted, into a Writer table
- but the borders are not copied (no matter what border I set in Calc, the copied table in Writer always show no borders).
Comment 4 Björn Michaelsen 2014-03-06 17:20:29 UTC
marking as dupe as per comment 2.

The behaviour in comment 3 should probably be reported in a separate bug report if it persists.
