Copying text from Writer from files with numbered lists

If I have a Writer document that is a numbered list of instructions, and I highlight a chunk of text and copy it to the clipboard, go to another program, i.e. Notepad, and paste the copied text, the number of the item that the text was originally copied from gets pasted as well, even if it was not highlighted to copy. Can this behavior be changed?

@RAF1 - As @qubit1 pointed out there is no option in LibO. A possibel workaround could be:

  • save your document with a different name

  • remove the numbering in Writer (most likely it should work with select text and ctrl+shift+b)

  • copy and paste into Notepad

Problem was reported in bug tracker few months ago:

As per this thread, FDO#56794 is a duplicate of FDO#49076 and likely even FDO#36322.

@RAF1 - Please have a look at the bug reports and see where can add information to help to identify the root cause.

Hi @RAF1,

I don’t know of any configuration option in LibreOffice to change this behavior. Sorry.
