Why are the cut and copy buttons greyed out in toolbar of Writer(English) Version: running on Lubuntu 14.04, 64 bit(English)?

While creating a Writer document with the standard toolbar visible, why are the cut and copy buttons in that toolbar grayed out and not available ?

LO- under Debian 6.0 (32-bit, EN-GB)

In ‘normal’ mode they are greyed out for me, too. However, as soon as I select some text then both become available. That seems like correct behaviour to me. Is it different for you?

Thanks for your assistance. That didn’t occur to me at first

Paste is only available if there is something in the clipboard to be pasted. Cut and copy are only available when some text has been selected to cut or copy. This is the way it should work.

Thank you for your help. That makes sense.
