Does anyone know why an image placed on the clipboard by ABBYY Screenshot Reader (part of the ABBYY FineReader 11 family) will not paste into a LO document (i.e. Writer, Calc, Impress or Draw)? The only LO app that gives an error message is Calc, which just says “the contents of the clipboard could not be pasted”. Not a lot of use as it doesn’t say why. The other LO apps don’t even give an error message - they just won’t paste it.
To explain…Screenshot Reader lets you select a rectangular portion (of your chosen dimensions) of the current screen, and then gives you various options to save it (e.g. as a file, to the clipboard, etc). If I choose to save it to the clipboard, then I can paste it into numerous other applications (such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc) and that all works exactly as you would expect - i.e. if it’s on the clipboard, “Paste” will paste it into the chosen document, without having to configure any special settings etc. It just does it.
However, it doesn’t work with LO, and I’m at a loss to understand why.
Does anyone have any ideas on this one please?
