Can't paste multi row/columns data inside the table.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Open Calc(Writer, Kate, gedit or any other writer)
2. Fill in the data into 3 rows(for example):
3. Select the data and copy it
4. Open Writer and create a table in it 1x3 (for example)
5. Select all 3 rows and try to paste previously copied data inside the table
It doesn't matter how you paste, non of the special paste method works.
Pastes selected data in respective rows the same way it was copied.
Operating System: All
Version: 188.8.131.52 release
Workaround if your data are text only: don't create the table first, instead use menu Table > Convert > Text to Table...
Best regards. JBF
Thats not workaround. Table already exist in odt file i need to paste additional data inside of it.
There is a script that does just that but that is a hacky method and works only if you need to paste data from table to table(and not as simple as it should be Ctrl+C -> Ctrl+V, also slow down alot on large data) not from text to table.
It should work just as simple as in MicrosoftOffice, copy and paste thats all.

Handing this one over to UX so they may weigh-in.
The text to table conversion is the intended workflow in LibreOffice. But as far as I remember Microsoft takes a selection into consideration. So when you have three lines and you select three rows, paste fills in these lines into the rows. LibO however duplicates the text in this case, which is not always wanted.
Would it be possible to automatically convert text when there is a selection?
Seems like duplicate of bug 37223
