I wonder if there is a problem with the font used or some other issue with both the text and font "type" being placed into a Calc cell.

I assume you tried "Paste Special" and used "unformatted text" or something like that.

The problem could be the mix between the two languages, since there are glyph/character differences between fonts.

I wonder if a different Japanese font would work better. There was a thread about different free Japanese fonts out there that were good with LO. I do not know if I would "trust" MS's version of that language font. I can look into my font folder and see what fonts were downloaded from the referred sites. Switching to one of them might fix the problem, or might not.

I would suggest you try 3.5 or 3.6 before reporting a bug.

I just confirmed what I think you're seeing, in LO 3.4.6.
I guess that a bug report is required, after searching to make sure it
hasn't already been reported.

So far not a single response.
Does that mean, I am the "ONLY ONE" experiencing this?
Or did I do something incredibly stupid? (yet, the same operation works
with OpenOffice)
Through googling and reading the documentation I could not yet find
anything helpful ...

Good evening
I am working a translation (Japanese-German), using LOWriter + Calc
Both programs are set up to contain the same font.
Writer is used for writing the text, Calc to record special translation
terms I use (and want to remember).

BUT .... when I copy a term (Japanse, font = MS P Gothic, 10.5 point)
from Writer to an empty cell in Calc,
the text gets gets garbled up and the computer is not even able to tell
me what font that is.
And it does not matter HOW I copy, straightforward with Ctrl+V, paste
special, paste unformated text ...
the result is always the same! Unintelligible hiroglyphs.
Yet, it works the other way: copy a term from Calc, paste it into
Writer: no problem.

When I copy the same text from Word (original text is a Word file),
there are no problems at all.

Can somebody please explain to me what is happening here?
(the same thing has happend many times in the past and is VERRY

Oh, I just tried one more thing.
I select a term in Writer to copy and paste it into Excel --> no

So, why does copy and paste not work between Writer -> Calc???

Thank you.
