The Paste special option under the Edit menu is never available when editing an HTML document. This behaviour seems to have changed since 3.6.
Since I’m copying text into a table here from a PDF this is very, very annoying. I need to get some clean HTML out of this in the end to put back into an ePub, so the less random font rubbish I have the better.
I suppose I could just dump Writer at this point (since I was mainly using it for table sorting), but it seems a bit dumb considering it was working a few days ago before I upgraded.
