Description drunken 2009-01-19 22:07:22 UTC

Last week I was making a table in writer. The table was a copy of a Calc table.
But if I selected the table and copy/pasted it in writer all the cells are
placed under the first.

Importing by including a file didn't work. Only including as a calc file. But It
had to be placed over about 3 pages. So that didn't work.

As a last resort I exported the document to HTML and CPed from there but still
noting. (Word did the job(Sorry))

For a other table I had to past copy a couple cells in to a table in writer. It
was a column of 6 cells. But by pasting it they where all put in one cell.

In all the cases the way of pasting and the type (text-only RTF etc) didn't do
any thing.

So pasting of cells in writer is broken or not functioning the right way.

Currently, the best way to copy from Calc to Writer is to paste the Calc content
as RTF or HTML in a blank area of the Writer doc (i.e. *outside* of a Writer
table) and copy/paste inside of Writer from the the new created table to the
already existing Writer table.
