paste from clipboard from Apple Notes or TextEdit

.rtf from Apple Notes or TextEdit should paste into LibreOffice from the clipboard on a Mac. But it doesn't. I get the error message "Unknown Source" when I use Paste Special.

I can open .rtf documents saved from TextEdit but can't paste from them from the clipboard. This is a serious deficiency for my workflow. I take a LOT of notes in Apple Notes and use TextEdit for most simple text. I need to be able to copy and paste, preserving text size, bold, and italic and other common text rtf features such as font choice.

Any solutions?
