I made a test I did before (maybetooo long time before) and
    reported today a bugBug55954-EDITING: copypaste issues
        - Japanese text from writer into calcWhat I remember from my
previous test( I used LO 3.5.4 or 3.5.5)is thatI got what is called in
Japanese "mojibake" and can be
        imaged as wingding symbols, thus unreadable characters. This
        time with LO at least all characters where correct.For
Scott to compare what I did in the test with what he did
        during his import process here the bug report:beginProblem
        description:copypaste of Japanese text from writer to calc shows
        opf the paste results depending on the paste methode (pasting
        directly into cells or pasting into the input line). Details are
        be seen in the attached files.
          to reproduce:

          copy a Japanese text in writer

          paste directly into a cell in calc creates a too small font
          matching the font in writer nor default in calc, color is

          paste into the input line creates the same font result but
          color is

          when increasing the font size in calc overlapping of Japanese
          characters occure depending on the width of the column (this
          can be
          seen in the attached calc sheet when changing the column

          described aboveThe
          same issue should appear with all double byte word languages
          (Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Thai etc...)

          pasting Japanese from writer into calc the font should be as
          writer or as the default font in calc (type, size, color)

          (if different from the browser):

 / XP SP3

          Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:16.0) Gecko/20100101
                @page { margin: 2cm }
                P { margin-bottom: 0.21cm }

I can confirm Dr R O Stapf's remark above, i e, copying text to Writer
from, e g, Japanese or Chinese newspapers and then copying a portion of
that text and pasting into a cell in Calc results, depending upon the
length of the text, in cell boundaries being exceeded. This running Version (Build ID: 360m1(Build:101)) of LibreOffice on 64-bit Ubuntu 12.04.
The web browser used to copy from the sources was Firefox Nightly 19.0a1

Thanks Tom:

  Ihe picture which i posted was made this afternoon, Taiwan time. Maybe i
did not explain it clearly.
The Libeoffice version is 3.6.2, and the encoding of Chinese is utf-8. No
matter is utf-8, unicode, big5 it happens the same.

oh, "Import file" means open a text file, and set delimiter of fixed width
