Description Frank Schönheit 2007-01-10 06:51:37 UTC
- copy some text into the clipboard which contains a space character Make sure you do this in an application which really only copies the text format (no HTML etc.) - in an empty cell of a Calc spreadsheet, press Ctrl-V => The "Text import" dialog appears - press Escape to cancel this dialog => an info message is shown saying "The contents of the clipboard could not be pasted." Well, yes, heck, I just *cancelled* pasting, so why bother me?

This is a usability issue. If the user cancels an operation, this should *cancel*, not disturb/distract with yet another dialog. (Side note: The "Text Import" dialog as such is disturbing enough in daily work. I do not know *any* other application which, upon a simply Paste, opens a modal dialog. This is highly unusual in my opinion, and breaks my work flow multiple times a day ...)

In CWS calc41: sc/source/ui/view/viewfun5.cxx 22.214.171.124 Regarding the disturbing "Text Import" dialog: that was introduced upon request, see issue 15509, as we don't have a general "process clipboard data to paste" handling with a filter options button in the Paste Special dialog.

thanks for the quick fix. I added my rant to issue 15509, thanks for pointing me there.
