I have a customer that sent me this (after upgrading from 3.1 to 4.2):
"LO will not copy and paste into anything that is not LO. This won't work for us, at all. For example, I can copy/paste from LO to LO....... but not LO to WORD or LO to emails. Phooey!!"
Upon investigation, I found that she was unable to paste formatted text to Word or Thunderbird (HTML mode) from LO Writer. She can paste the formatted text as simple text (paste special), but she loses the formatting. She can paste formatted text from Word and Thunderbird into LO, just not the other way around.
I posted this on the forum and got told to file a bug.
I am not able to reproduce this in the Linux version of LO 4.2 (were the clipboard is working beautifully).
Thanks for report this.
I confirm that formatted text cannot be pasted to Word or Thunderbird, without losing formating, with LO 22.214.171.124 & Windows 7 Home Premium.
I am able to do it with LO 126.96.36.199 portable.
I set Status to NEW.

This is the clip board of a "copy" from LO 4.2. Goes with the attached document

docs that was used to copy into the clipboard
I have attached two raw "clipboard" files created by copying text from the attached documents into the clipboard.
A comparison of the two clipboard file should show why LO's clipboard won't copy formatted text. (One would hope)

This sounds like the same problem as bug 74537.
-> bug 74584.
Setting the correct version. Nobody has tested the version originally specified.
I confirm that this one shares the same root cause with Bug 74584.
