1) create new document with a table
2) get some text into the clipboard (e.g. 'hello' from notepad)
3) select multiple cells in the table
4) paste

Result: the first cell correctly contains 'hello', but subsequent cells get

I still cannot reproduce it (current m157 on Win 2000)
Please check this in a current version and feel free to reopen if it still
happens. Please then attach a sample document.

Just following the 4 steps I got the problem.

MRU->ES: this is quite easy to reproduce. Copy a short string (like 12345) from
Windows Notepad to clipboard. In Writer create a 5x5 table. Then select cells
A1:A5 and paste Clipboard content. See the result as described above.

Comment 14 eric.savary 2006-03-23 11:15:42 UTC
Thousand excuses!!! I mixed up NOTEpad and WORDpad.
Now reproducible.

BTW: same result on Linux betwee Kate (KDE ASCII editor) and OOo.

Not broken (Also reproduce in OOo 1.0.3)

I'd like to add that MS Word notices if there are tabs in the pasted text and
splits the content into the right cells, as I described in now closed <a
href="">Issue 65593</a>.

This behaviour should be copied, I think.

Comment 19 cno 2007-12-01 19:06:18 UTC
While lokking at some table issues, I checked this in 2.3.0 and 680m8.
I can't see the undesired behaviour -> probably fixed?
Comment 20 andreas.martens 2007-12-03 09:21:25 UTC
No, I am still able to reproduce this behavior :-( 
- even with OOo2.3.1
Comment 21 cno 2007-12-03 09:30:59 UTC
Sorry, I copied from the wrong source. Indeed the problem still excists.
