    Default how to paste from html email into libre office

    Hello,

    I sometimes get important emails that are formatted in html with pictures, graphs, etc., that need
    to be cut and pasted into a libre office writer document. However, when I do copy and paste, it
    only pastes the text, and not any of the pictures or graphics. I couldn't find how to do this with
    a google search or the help items; there was only something about pasting from the web.

    When I hit "paste special" it only has one offer to paste unformatted text.

    How do I get the pictures and links that are in an email to also be pasted into my libreoffice
    document? I am using libreoffice 3.5 and kmail 4.9.2.

    Try pasting from thunderbird.

    Pictures get inserted as links that load after you open the document.
    Kmail support of html has always been lacking.

    Yes, it worked from thunderbird, thanks for the tip. Very interesting. I
    have been trying to learn how to work around kmail, and I end up going
    back and forth between kmail and thunderbird. There is only one feature
    that kmail has which I like better than thunderbird - the threaded
    emails in kmail also have an option of segregating separately the emails
    that have been received in the last 5 days and weeks. If thunderbird had
    that feature, I would go entirely with thunderbird, as it is faster and
    does not take such a long time to synchronize like kmail.

    You have custom views for that. I have been using TB and I'm sure it had
    that.

    I've changed to SeaMonkey a good while ago and it at least does.

    Welcome.
    But I'm confused: the OP was written by golson765, and instead of his
    answer I get yours :-?

    I'm not familiar with that feature; I use threaded sort, then sort by date.
