Please, implement "Paste options" button as it is in MS Office (see picture).
When you paste the text it would be very helpfull to have options to choose which format to apply.
It would be very helpfull to see this button in all LO applications (at least in Writer and Calc).
Handing over to the design team and purposefully leaving this UNCONFIRMED as the team might not agree with the reporter.
Clicking the right arrow of paste button, shows the options on how to paste.
Yes, but not as easy as it is in MS Office.
Please what is it not so easy?, there are two clicks on both.

See attached example.
There is very often when you do not know which format it is better to apply.
In LO you have to copy-paste it again and again clicking 2 times untill you find the solution. And it will be 3 times clicks after the second copy-paste (the system will ask you if you are sure to replace the cell). In MS Office it is just 1 click.
It is necessary to simplify the process.
ux-advise -> NEW
With 4.4, we have paste and paste unformatted text in Writer, and i've filled a bug report about implement third option found in Word and WordPerfect (bug 83102).
With Calc, the context menu has paste Text, Number, and Formula under the paste only submenu. Paste unformatted text needs to be implemented there as well.
We're replacing our use of the 'ux-advise' component with a keyword:
Component -> LibreOffice
Add Keyword: needsUXEval
How to get rid of this paste option box is a frequently asked question for Microsoft Office. Calc shows you a dialog on shift+ctrl+v (or Edit > Paste Special...) that has more features than competitors and works perfectly.
Let's keep it boring but established.
