Currently it is not possible to insert text in the text field at the top with a right mouse click.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open CALC
2. Copy text from any software application (like MS Editor, LO Writer, etc.) into the clipboard
3. Go to any cell in the CALC spreadsheet and put the cursor in the text field at the top
4. Try to make a right mouse click to insert the text from the clipboard
Nothing happens, no context menu opens.
It would be good to have the possibilty to copy text from the clipboard with a right mouse click like you can do it via EDIT -> PASTE or via pressing CTRL + V.
Reproduced on LO 220.127.116.11, Win 8.1
Valid enhancement request but asking for UX Advice - more context menus can be problematic.
New (confirmed as valid on Ubuntu 14.04)
Lowest - really not a big deal, you can easily do ctrl+v or paste directy into cell with context menu.
@UX Team - if it won't be fixed please set to WONTFIX
Works out of the box in 4.4 under Linux. Still an issue?

Unfortunately, I can still reproduce it. Have you tried to insert the copied text in the Input Line at the top (above the CALC sheet) with a right mouse click?
Verified still on:
ubuntu 14.10 x64
LibreOffice 18.104.22.168 rc
I though you mean to paste into a "text box". Yes, there is still no context menu for the formula input line (or memo when expanded, which has a very strange interaction). So I'd agree that for sake of consistency a standard context menu should be applied that contains of Undo, Cut, Copy, Paste, Delete, Select All, Special Character (most items would be disabled always).
We're replacing our use of the 'ux-advise' component with a keyword:
Component -> LibreOffice
Add Keyword: needsUXEval
Please add a standard context menu to the formula editor. The menu should allow to Cut, Copy, Paste, Delete, Select All, Cancel and Accept. We could extend it with some often used equations such as Sum, Mean, Min, Max, etc. but I wouldn't overdesign this alternative workflow.
Changed the title from "Impossible to insert text in the text field with right mouse click" to something probably more clear and removed UX.
Was never there so guess it is not missing, but it is needed :)
