Copy and paste to Libra Writer

I have just installed Libra office on windows 10.

When I try to copy text from an email or a web page into a Libra Writer document it automatically formats what I have copied as a spread sheet format. I don't want this. I just want to simply copy text and paste it as is. Can anyone explain how I can change this.

I had Microsoft office starter 2010 before this and things worked fine.

PS: I'm not a computer expert so the solution needs to be explained simply.

A lot depends on what kind of stuff you copy. If you copy text and numbers in a table, it's normal that it'll be converted to a table. If you copy my reply and it turns into a spreadsheet, you have a problem. So we'd need a sample of a file with that problem. You can attach a file: either edit your question or start a reply, click the paperclip icon in the icon bar over the edit box to attach a file. You may get more help in a forum where people can post as many replies as they like, for instance - many active users have LibreOffice.
