The Paste special option under the Edit menu is never available when editing an HTML document. This behaviour seems to have changed since 3.6.

Since I'm copying text into a table here from a PDF this is very, very annoying. I need to get some clean HTML out of this in the end to put back into an ePub, so the less random font rubbish I have the better.

I suppose I could just dump Writer at this point (since I was mainly using it for table sorting), but it seems a bit dumb considering it was working a few days ago before I upgraded.

Whatever was causing this, it has gone away after some Windows updates and a required reboot.

I could indeed have saved as ODT, but doesn't look like I'll have to. Thanks anyway oweng.

I can't replicate this here under Crunchbang 11 running TDF/LO v4.0.3.3. The Edit > Paste Special... option is available when editing a HTML document, as shown here. In any case though is there some reason you can't doing your editing using the ODT format and then File > Save As... to HTML once you are finished? That is how I would work, using HTML as an export / alternative format.
