Description domike 2014-05-17 09:59:48 UTC
Steps to reproduce:
1. Open a web page in web browser, copy some content
2. Paste into Writer (without Paste special)

Current behavior:
Text is unformatted and images are not pasted.

Expected behavior:
Text formatting and images are preserved.

This can be worked around via Paste special, however this should not be the default.

Operating System: Windows 8
Version: release
Last worked in: release
