Description fousage 2005-05-21 10:06:01 UTC
When trying to use paste special with data from an other application, I got an
empty list to choose from. Choosing OK just paste "normal".

Tried with different clipboard content (unformated text, html) from different
applications (Thunderbird, Firefox, Notepad, Notepad++).

Paste special from OOo to OOo seems to work somehow although :
- The exact wording changes from application to application : you get either
" <application>" or " <document type>".
- There is a blank entry below the OOo entry.
- "DDE Link" sometimes appears, sometimes not.
- There is no "unformated text" nor any other usual choices.

This is getting stranger.

After a Windows restart, Paste Special works correctly. BUT now Paste (simple
normal paste) does is if it was Paste Unformated Text.

I perversly hope this will be a WorksForMe for everybody else...

No problem pasting from several apps, formats.
Please reopen with exact and detailed description if it happens again.

Paste Special, decices to work or not work by itself.

So does the define print area. i think its an issue with the context sensitivity.

Using 2.0.3 and just the same happened to me.
To test it, I ctrl+c normal text from other odt document.
when wanted to shift+ctrl+v the window gives me an option:
- writer
- empty field (that is probably unformatted text)
- DDE link (??)

any ideas what could be wrong?
I have this problem since some 2 days, before that, everything was fine.

ps look at attachments. screenshot of the paste special window

Please find a way to rerproduce this i.e attach a sample document where to copy
from. Else this issue will remain closed.
