Description richlv 2003-05-19 11:30:43 UTC
given : windows 2000 msword with some .doc opened, some pics there (tested with msword 10/2002/xp) oo.org writer with blank document actions : copy picture from msword. paste it in oo.org writer. result : in win2k temp directory is usually located somewhere C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Local Settings\Temp when copying from msword, i guess, picture is saved in temporary location and pointer to that location is copied in clipboard. this pointer looks like "file:///C: \DOCUME~1\<user>\LOCALS~1\Temp\msohtml1\01\clip_image002.gif" (at least with office xp on win2k) in oo.org writer there is no picture - just graphics container with this url displayed. it is possible to get the writer display the picture by a) replacing all backslashes with slashes b) removing "file:///" from the beginning of graphics properties link field

Comment 2 michael.ruess 2003-09-22 08:50:06 UTC
MRU->ES: The HTML clipboad format des not work correctly (checked with srx645 and sr680).
Comment 3 eric.savary 2003-10-23 16:33:51 UTC
ES->DVO: can we work around this *MS bug*? Word 2000 sends to clipboard an URL with slashes -> Ok Word 2002 sends to clipboard an URL with blackslashes -> bug! We could do following: if clipboard link begins with "file://" and conains "\" then replace all "\" with "/"?
Comment 4 openoffice 2003-10-28 15:52:21 UTC
dvo: I agree it's an MS bug. We can probably offer a work-around, so I've changed target to OOo 2.0; this way, this will get into the next major version (if possible).

Any known workaround of this MS bug? This bug makes it difficult to interchange info from Word to OO and is been around quite a while now. Best regards, Lars
Comment 13 richlv 2005-10-11 12:47:32 UTC
well, as i mentioned in my (now 2.5 years old 8) ) post, you can manually fix picture after copying it : a) replacing all backslashes with slashes b) removing "file:///" from the beginning of graphics properties link field now, as i haven't used windows for last 2 years, i can't think of anything else :)

WIN ALL due to comments and Bug 124076 Status back to CONFIRMED because no assignee I can't imagine why this one has been rated "trivial" In the DUPs list there also are some "Copy/Paste from IE" problem reports, I am not sure whether they really are related: "Bug 58957 - Copy Paste from IE to OO Writer Text does not work well" "Bug 51156 - Cannot copy and paste text and graphics from IE web page"
Comment 22 slacka 2014-01-27 14:20:49 UTC
With AOO 4.0 1) Paste normal: Result - FAIL 2) Paste special (GDI) Result - PASS 3) Paste special (Bitmap) Result - FAIL nothing was pasted 4) Paste special (html) Result - FAIL same as 1) Earlier posts indicated that it was a bug with forward and backslashes. It might also be that the paste detection code in Writer and Calc is broken since it is using the html format instead of GDI.
