Description Maarten 2014-02-09 09:42:57 UTC
Since the latest release (LO am not able to copy & paste (a text written in Writer)to mozilla thunderbird (and see it in message itself). 
In Libreoffice 4.1 this worked fine. 

Note: it is still possible to send message from within Libreoffice and then thunderbird opens and is see text as attached document. This is not my intention. I want to copy + paste text in  thunderbirds message windowitself.  
Operating System: Windows 7
Version: release
Last worked in: release
Comment 1 A (Andy) 2014-02-09 11:05:40 UTC
reproducible with LO (Win8.1)

It is not possible to copy text from WRITER to a Thunderbird email.  From IMPRESS and CALC this works fine.
Comment 2 Jürgen 2014-02-20 13:35:14 UTC
Same problem - but it works when pasting without format.

Comment 4 Jürgen 2014-02-20 13:47:32 UTC
Steps to reproduce:
1. I opened a text in LO Writer containing different formating and tables.
2. I copy it into the clipboard
3. I try to paste it into thunderbird - nothing happens
4. I try to paste without formating - text appears

5. When pasting into Windows Notepad - some formatting like fonts are pasted correctly.

It worked fine before installing LO 4.2 with 4.1.3 and former versions - Thunderbird wasn't updated in the meantime.
Comment 5 Jürgen 2014-02-20 13:55:15 UTC
After deinstallation of LO 4.2.1 and reinstallation of 4.1.4 the problem doesn't appear anymore.

The only thing strange is - in the Thunderbird-Mail appears a dozend of Ankers with marks like "__DdeLink__373_1737046974"

Hi all,

This was previously reported in 
Bug 74584 - Can no longer copy spreadsheet cells from libreoffice calc to another app like thunderbird and paste as html table.
The bug affects Writer and Calc when Copy/Paste of a formatted text is used from these applications to an external application as Thunderbird, MS Word or Excel...
I set Status to DUPLICATE.

Kind regards,
