cut and paste goes onto multiple pages

When I cut and paste from another doc into Libra the text is cut up into multiple side by side pages. When I started using the program this didn’t happen - just started.

You do not say what type of document you are cutting from. Is it a ,odt writer document or something else? Are you pasting into an existing .odt document? what version of LibO are you using? Which operating system? What do you mean by multiple side by side pages? The more useful information you give, the easier it will be to give useful advice.

A thought. Are you using multiple page view and you now have more than one page in the document?
