Pasting an image from MS Powerpoint or MS Word does not work. It works though when using Edit-Paste Special - "GDI Metafile" or "Bitmap".

Isn't this the same bug as: 35176
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 35176 ***
*** Bug 108966 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
This is not the same as bug 35176. Copying individual images and copying a document with embedded images are totally different. bug 35176 is about documents with images. This bug is about images.
While I cannot confirm this as a bug, I have to agree with Luke that they are 2 different reports.
For me this is a "works for me", because I opened the attachment https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/attachment.cgi?id=144992 in Word 2013 and copied the image to the clipboard, pasting into a new LO Writer Version: 184.108.40.206 (x64) document as either a straight Ctrl + V or 'Paste Special' as CGI & BMP I get an identical image.
Repeated the test with Word 2010 & 2016 with the same result.
My tests were done on Win 7 Ult (x64) & Win 10 (x64)
Sorry this doesn't help your case, but this seems to be a local issue and NAB.
Thanks, Dave. It is curious that we now have "WFM" for this while bug 35176 is also fixed, but sure, let's close with that status :)
In my installation this bug still exists and I'm curious that an issue that is reproduced by many people is dismissed as 'local issue'. I'm strongly for reopening this bug as NEW!

Copying a single picture from attachment 92563 [details] or attachment 144992 [details] doesn't work for me. Tested with MSO Word & Excel 2013 on Windows 10 Pro (x64).
More curious, in some cases e.g. if I copy an embedded image from an MS Outlook e-mail or an image/text combination (of bug 35176) from MSO Word then I can paste it with ctrl+v bug not with the menu, toolbar or context menu. These commands are greyed out.
I just reproduced this on 2 different Win 10 machines with Version: 18.104.22.168 (x64) + Office 2013. Also reproduced in a 3rd VM which was a fresh install of Win 10 + Office 2016. Definitely not fixed.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. In a MS Word, open or create a document with an image, like attachment 144992 [details]
2. Select ONLY the image. CTRL+C (only image, no text should be in clipboard)
3. In Writer, New document
Hopefully this will clear up some confusion
So here is an oddity--the same image pasted into PowerPoint 2016 and into Word 2016 has different results on image copy and paste, <Ctrl>+V into empty Writer 22.214.171.124 document.
Attaching clips of NirSoft InsideClipboard stack of what PowerPoint, and then what Word place onto clipboard.
The sequences are different between the two--the PowerPoint clip will paste image to Writer; while the Word clip will not. Looks like Word hits the empty CF_BITMAP bitmap first while the PowerPoint hits the PNG stream.
Is that why the paste from PowerPoint clip works and the paste from Word fails?
The Art::GVML Clipformat -- ID 49962 is an internal non-OOXML MS-ODRAWXML  holding a ZIP of the embedded image.

If that is issue, would there be some way to guard against zero length CF_BITMAP, or other "standard" clipboard formats that could trip things up?
Also, for interoperability, would it be worth creating a module to handle the Art::GVML Clipformat? Its been around forever 
I guess the best would be to figure out what MSO uses between their apps for copy&paste and make sure we read the same.

Repro 6.4+ in Windows for paste from MS Word to LO Writer per steps in comment 11.
As noted in Comment 12, paste same image from MS Excel or Powerpoint works.
