There is a Bug report filed #97124. Additionally, another interesting Bug report suggests other software may cause some of these problems #62196

I personally have not been able to replicate this in v4.4.7.2 or v5.1.1.3 on a Linux system.

Not to highjack Noel blanc, but I'm using 5.1.0.3 and also can't paste. What gives? Only if I paste in Notepad first, plain, can I get text to Writer. Using Windows 7 Pro (64b). Currently I'm grabbing text from online.

I fail to understand why anything on the clipboard is not recognized by Writer. The file is new, no odd permissions, not locked. What could cause this? Is this problem in any way related to Noel's Notepad text not pasting?

Thank you,

Mac

hello, more information on my test. "other software may cause some of these problems " : yes ! Actually the browser edge presence disrupts the Clipboard. In my test (first post) i was copying from the edge browser to Notepad. And then I was copying from Notepad into Writer. This is to eliminate html formatting. And if I close edge, then the contents of the Clipboard is correct in Writer. Bug or not, close edge or writer : not good for me ! Writer is a good, a very good program. But everyone copy/paste ....

I do not see a bug report specifically dealing with MS Edge (relatively new product). It would be helpful to all if you could file a bug report with your specifics. See this page under the section 'Bugs'. Also please post comment with Bug # so others may know this has been reported.
