Description lukekendallhome 2010-03-04 11:16:23 UTC
Every time you invoke Paste Special after copying text from OOo, the default
choice seems to be Writer itself.  (Similar to what Word does.)  Both in Word
and in OOo, I find that I normally (over 90% of the time) want to choose
Unformatted text.  Even if it defaulted to the same choice you made last time,
it would more often be right.  But if there was a checkbox that said "Make the
current choice the default", that would be ideal.  One could even then usefully
assign a keyboard shortcut to it, since you would know what the choice was going
to be in advance.

This is one of my pet hates for Word - it'd be nice to see OOo leapfrog Word in
this respect.  Please consider!

Oh, BTW: The "Found in version:" field doesn't list the version I'm using - it's
build OOO310m19, not OOO310m9.  Came with Ubuntu.
