Text from other app used to be formatted

After I recently updated LO to the latest version, pasted text from a certain other application is only unformatted. Before updating LO, the text was formatted. Key portions of the text are bold and bold+superscript, and re-creating the formatting is not a fun thing, but tedious and error-prone. LO doesn't recognize the application from which the text was copied anymore.

Is there a way for me to fix this? I am comfortable editing the registry or config files or whatever I need to do.

Many thanks for your help!

Well, you NAILED it! I guess it'll be fixed in 5.4.0, so it shouldn't be long. Many thanks, Mike.

It also has a patch for 5.3.1. It is still unclear if the patch is complete, though. A comment there suggests that more fixes may be required.
