Description ramiro 2005-10-20 01:28:56 UTC
OO2.0rc2 (spreadsheet) 
The past special command does not allows to copy only the the Note on a cell. 
Insert contents in cell A1 
Add a Note in cell A1 
Insert contents in cell A2 
Go to cell A1 and Copy 
Go back to cell A2 
Paste Special, unselect 'all', select 'Notes' only and press OK 
Screen asks 'Overwrites ?' N cancels, Y copies Note but deletes contents

this is not a bug. Paste special just allows you to select what you want to
*paste*. Pasting is typically an overwright action. Use Add from the calculation
section of the dialog to achieve the addition of the note to the cell you want
to paste it.

I think, that this issue should not be closed invalid, but set as duplicate to
issue 26855.
