Everything OK here, just pasted your message in Writer, it offers “plain text” and “HTML” in Paste-special.
Then changed formatting and copy-paste to Writer, Impress and Calc are all OK.
I too used Ctrl+C to copy, if it does matter.
BTW, the current LO version is 220.127.116.11, you may update your system.
If it is a special copy-paste that doesn’t work for you, please add the relevant details.
I made a few other tests and I can reproduce your finding only when copying from a .pdf file displayed by Evince document viewer in Gnome. Apparently Evince only copies unformatted text to the clipboard and that is what LO-Writer offers to paste.
When copying from a .pdf file displayed by Okular in KDE, I have the choice to copy as text or graphics and LO-Writer offers to paste accordingly.
When copying from Firefox or Evolution I’m offered to paste HTML or unformatted text.
When copying from Apache OpenOffice I’m offered to paste a full spectrum of options.
And the same is true when copying from other apps (Calc, Impress, Draw…) from both LibreOffice and OpenOffice.
So, if you need further help, please specify:
what document format you are copying from;
what application you are using to display that document;
what you are actually copying (formatted text, HTML, image …);
what document format you are pasting into and/or what LO application you are using to paste;
possibly, what Desktop environment you are using (KDE, Gnome or whatever).
Thanks Orso for all the effort.
But actually this is an internal issue, within the application : when I copy/paste a paragraph from a document inside the same document but somewhere else. The same issue remains from document to a new or existing one. All in LibreOffice.
It’s really too bad because I really like the easy tweaky thing of opensuse but I have to many strange bugs with it. I already had to remove it from one of my other computers and it seems that I will have to do the same with this one…
Hi Paul, you are actually using a newer version (18.104.22.168) on Tumbleweed, but I can’t reproduce here either with 5.0.4 on Leap Gnome.
Even tried with older .sxw documents from OpenOffice 1.0… NOPE, not reproducible!
Is the problem still visible with a fresh, simple document?
Was the problem document originally saved by another version or application? Is it very large, does it contain large graphics or is it in any way “unusual”?
@OrsoBruno Actually they were all installed : libreoffice-gtk3, libreoffice-gnome and libreoffice-kde4 and as I write this they still are. But after rethinking, I really wonder why it does install all of them by default as one should be enough… gnome or gtk3 as I run gnome desktop.
Anyway I did remove one package during the reinstall which was hunspell-32bit and it does function properly now. It is a spell checker which may did conflict with something else.
@tannington So it was definetely a bug but a bug during installation. Either the installer misbehaved or didn’t noticed : I run a 64 bit and it installed the 2 hunspell packages available - hunspell and hunspell-32bit, it looks like that wasn’t a good idea…
So I dearly thank you all for your support and I can at last marked this thread as SOLVED.
As to the root cause, I doubt that it is an installer bug, at least not a “clean standard install” bug in the Leap install DVD.
The DVD does NOT have hunspell-32bit, and it is not automatically called in during update.
I did a clean Gnome install and neither libreoffice-gnome nor libreoffice-gtk3 were automatically installed.
BTW libreoffice-gtk3 is no replacement for libreoffice-gnome, but a (troublesome) addon AFAIK.
I did a clean KDE install in a VM and libreoffice-kde4 WAS automatically installed.
Both installs called in hunspell (the 64bit flavour).
So your setup with all three libreoffice-gnome, libreoffice-gtk3 and libreoffice-kde4 appears to be “non-standard” in a way or another; maybe your system was upgraded from a prior version or install attempt?
Very strange… Because it is a clean install. I just installed postgresql, mariadb, apache2 and haven’t even finished the whole configuration. Maybe hunspell-32bit came along with some small packages I installed. If I recall : nemo, parcellite (which keyboard shorcut does not work by the way…) and http-yast2-server and … That’s all.
I didn’t try to tweak (and did not put my head into) libreoffice yet with all latex stuff. So I really don’t know why I had all those libreoffice-(gnome/gtk3/kde4) checked… :sarcastic:
