Description Susan Cragin 2016-02-05 14:52:40 UTC
I am trying to get a simple keystroke to paste unformatted text from one paragraph in a text document to a cell in a spreadsheet. 
In Calc, I went in to Tools / Customize and change CTL-v to paste only text. (This works in Writer.)
But it doesn't work. Nothing gets pasted. "paste only text" does not work.

I can confirm this on LO and

I've noticed that creating a shortcut with Ctrl+Shift+M for example, does not work for Cut but using Ctrl+F9 works.

So further investigation should be done to keyboard shortcuts

How to reproduce:
1. Tools >> Customize >> Keyboard tab
2. Chose the shortcut key (upper section)
3. Chose edit as category and paste only text as function, in Functions section (lower section)
3. press modify button
4. press OK

The shortcut key does not work

Seems Paste only text has never worked in Calc. I cannot tie it to any shortcut.
