cur = ThisComponent.Text.createTextCursor()

System clipboard now contains transferable text.

P.S. Does getTransferable really works through system clipboard? O_o

Please, could you be more explicit and describe what is the current behavior and what would be the expected behavior?

I reproduce but getTransferable get access to a transferable representation of *a selected part* of an object. The following line *removes* the selection:

cur.String = ""

If you comment this line the selection is still active and the content of the clipboard is preserved.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Open your test case
2. Comment cur.String = ""
3. Select and copy "Bugzilla – Bug 83522"  to the top left of this page
4. Click at the beginning of your document (before the text)
5. Run your macro
6. Goto the end of your document, paste

Expected & actual result: "Bugzilla – Bug 83522" pasted

So you have to do the insertTransferable before you change the selection, e.g.

oSource = ThisComponent
cur = oSource.Text.createTextCursor()
cur.goRight(3, True)       
transferable = ThisComponent.CurrentController.getTransferable()
oTarget = stardesktop.loadcomponentfromurl("private:factory/swriter", "_blank", 0, array())
document   = ThisComponent.CurrentController.Frame
dispatcher = createUnoService("")
dispatcher.executeDispatch(document, ".uno:Escape", "", 0, Array())
transferable = ThisComponent.CurrentController.getTransferable()
cur.String = ""

I guess it's notabug, then.. Original reporter is free to protest with an eloquent explanation.
