I'm pretty sure I was able to do this in an earlier version of open office, but when I copy and paste a text frame in LibreOffice 3.6, nothing seems to happen. If I think change it's position, it becomes clear that there is only one copy of the frame.... which makes producing custom label templates a big hassle.

Is there a trick I'm missing that will allow this copy/paste?

Works perfectly fine for me (Win 7 64 bit, LO Maybe the frame got pasted exactly at the position of the "old" frame?

Hi @adamc,

Please try installing the latest release of LO and see if that solves your problem. As @tohuwawohu notes, please check to make sure that one text frame isn't hiding under another one :-)

If you're still having an issue with copy-paste and text frames after the update, please file a bug and provide a list of steps that can reproduce your problem. The QA team will be happy to help you track down this issue!

Please post a link to any bugs you file in a comment below using the format "fdo#123456".
