Greetings, when I try to paste a table from Writer to Impress I lose formatting (font face, super- and subscript), and the document becomes extremely slow to handle - sometimes LO simply hangs completely. Problem verified on at least four different PCs (all Windows 10). Is this a known bug or a "feature"? Does any body know how to paste a table without losing all the formats and especially without getting Impress behaving like a turtle? Thanks in advance P.S. LO Version 6.1.2.1 (x64), build 65905a128db06ba48db947242809d14d3f9a93fe

That gives a completely screwed up result, unfortunately. Only part of the table is visible and there is no way to get all of it to fit the slide.

In addition to @kompilainenn I mention that his way is the right one. But you have to edit the pasted Writer table. Let me compare pasted tables from Calc and Writer.

  • Calc

This table fits without problems in Impress.

  • Writer

This table is "screwed up" on the first view. You have to double click on it, then the colour of the selected object handles changes from green into black. Now alter the boundaries or edit the table. When you have finished click on another part of page/slide and the altered boundaries will work. You probably have to do that as long as the result is not optimized. It is more work than pasting a Calc table.

See attached file and... try out yourself. (I worked on LO 6.1.0.3)
