Is pasting in calc search mac not working?

Macbook Pro - MacOS Sonoma 14.6
LibreOffice Version (aarc64)
Kazakh or Russian language.
If English is selected, everything works fine.
This problem started back in 2013

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Copy the text from any source on the mac
  2. Fire up calc
  3. Command+F (find) or from the Edit - Find menu.
  4. Place the cursor in the search box in the lower right corner
  5. Command+V or from the Edit-Paste menu
  6. The text is pasted into the last selected cell of the sheet, not the search box!

This is interesting. I don’t have a Mac to test on but can you confirm what language/locale your Mac is set to and whether LibreOffice is set to the same or different?

It may relate to this issue: Copy paste bug in libre writer

language/locale your Mac

Mac locale is English (USA)
LO locale is Default - English (USA)

That’s a different problem. I encountered a similar one a few years ago in Linux.

Does paste into search from the context menu (right click) work? See comment 96 from tdf#49853

If it is repeatable bug, then you should file a bug report specifying the two languages which don’t work, see How to Report Bugs in LibreOffice - The Document Foundation Wiki
