Description ace_dent 2006-12-02 20:17:23 UTC
Using OOo2.0.4, WinXP PC.
I was playing around to see if some of the functionality of MS OneNote could be
duplicated using textboxes in OOoDraw - quickly jotting notes/ ideas down, then
re-arranging the textboxes in a more logical order. My idea was then to transfer
the text into Writer.

RFE: Currently to copy text from a textbox (e.g. from Draw) to paste into
Writer, it is necessary to double click and select the text first. To save time,
it would be nice if I could just select the textbox (single click) and then
copy, allowing me to 'Paste Special'>'Unformatted text' in Writer.

Furthermore, it would be useful when selecting multiple text boxes to allow the
User to copy&paste all of the selected text from boxes into a Text document. I
know this might be a tricky function (e.g. to me it would be logical to order
text based on y-position: top-to-bottom, but maybe this is not the general user
