LIbreOffice Writer, current version. Just like it says in the title. When I try to paste html, as html, the paste fails, and no content is actually pasted after the first page break. I tried both options.
Plain text works, although that’s rather useless, unless I want to spend hours reformatting text as a document.
What the heck?
EDIT: Current as in… when you click the update button, it says ‘You are current’.
HTML as in… pasting in HTML from an HTML page. Specifically, the central column of this page:
…but there were about 3 other random pages that I tested that all did the same thing.

I don’t think there is a solution. I tried to tidy up the code with HTML-tidy, W3C Validation, and NVU’s grandchild, BlueGriffin. I also discovered that the Chrome developer tools no longer have any breadcrumbs of those tools left in it (that I could find). Absolutely nothing automagically repairs the HTML so that Writer renders the HTML correctly.
We either A) need to aggressively attempt to import HTML and render it properly. or B) aggressively attempt to get everybody on the planet to generate compliant code.
I don’t see either one happening.
Perhaps if we could find some way to get the rendered output out of a browser or html editor that renders it porperly, and imported THAT instead of the raw HTML? DIdn’t there used to be a tool that did that back in the day?
Oh, additionally, I have absolutely no CLUE why Hagar’s machines import more of the page than mine. That’s a head scratcher right there.
