I am now LO active user for more than 5 months and I am satisfied. However, I find copy/paste/ undo function should be improved, but I would like to see if it only happens to me.

  • When drawing something in LO Writer, moving object while holding CTRL does not copy that object... sometimes it does...
  • When trying to copy drawing in LO Writer in regular way (CTRL + C then CTRL + V), it does not work. But if I right click on object, select Copy, and then again right click, select Paste it works.
  • When trying to move some slides from Slide Panel (left side), it happens that slide is being copied, even though I didn't press any additional key.
  • When editing table in LibreOffice Impress, Undo fuction is only limited to table editing, but does not function correctly (it can undo some changes... I didn't recognize the pattern).

I am using Ubuntu 13.04, Libre Office 4.0.5.2.

My primary goal is to see if this happens to others or it is system specific. Thanks in advance.

I tested all of this behaviors you described and I think all of them are bugs. So I have taken the time and report all of this issues as bugs.

1. Bug: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=70044
2. Bug: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=70046
3. Bug: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=70047
4. Bug: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=70048

I am feeling buggy today... :)

Please take a time and test the steps I have written and post comments in the bugs (just don't spam too much), just write that the same problem appears in Ubuntu 13.04 and write down how did you install LibreOffice in Ubuntu (default package from Ubuntu repository - so no install at all), using PPA which one, installing deb package from LibreOffice web site, something else...

Thanks. I think I figure out what happens related to bug 3 (LO Impress slides being copied). If you click on slide and move mouse outside the Slide side bar, mouse cursos change to "+" which is, I guess, the idea how to copy the same slide. It happens to me often that slide is being copied for no reason, but I was not able to reproduce the bug the same way you explain in bugzilla. I guess this could be the cause - I accidently move the mouse outside the side bar?
