Hi Tom

No, no issues elsewhere in Ubuntu Raring or Windows 7 with cut/copying and pasting. I can even cut/copy and paste from a Calc individual cell, see screenshots below (hope we can drop screenshots on emails to the global mailing list)

But what used to be as I explained, seems to have been dropped or not included as a feature from the top input line, this screenshot does not show it but I am trying to right click in this input line space, the result no drop down menu or option to cut/copy or paste. This used to be available from the days of StarOffice, OOo, and if I am correct and memory serves, the first versions of LO. And all version of MSO can do it.

Hi :)
I have had a few issues copy&pating lately. Not sure i can pin it down to a single app or single OS.

Seems that nowadays if i copy something and then close the document i copied it from then paste 'forgets' and goes back to the previous thing i copied/cut. If i keep the document open then paste works just fine.

Is your current and recent problem likely to be something similar?

Err, because there are 2 separate questions i tried to break this Calc issue out into a separate thread by "Forwarding" this email back to this mailing list. "Reply to all" hopefully works fine now.

Tom :)

    Hi Everyone

    Well this is now my turn to ask for some help, and to see if any
    of you
    have or are experiencing these issues. This applies to both my
    version, and Ubuntu Raring versions of LO, so a common occurrence.
    it has persisted since I migrated over to LO. Your responses will
    me before I send this as a bug report, missing feature.

    In Calc, I cannot copy and paste any data content out of the input
    at the top i.e. right click the mouse and copy using the now non
    existent drop down menu. This goes for an existing spreadsheet or
    creating a new one. In the past, not sure if it was early versions
    of LO
    Calc, or OOo Calc, but I could do this, no problems. I copy from a
    of pricelists and other similiar type spreadsheets, and paste into
    sheets or directly into emails for my business, and I find now the
    workaround is to highlight the content and Ctrl c to copy it, or
    the menu "Edit". This needs to be looked at and added as a
    feature, or
    returned as a feature. MS Office Excel has always allowed this as

    This next one is in Writer, and many of my clients have this issue as
    well, and I feel this is a major failure or feature exclusion. Writer
    cannot handle the copy and paste of multiple image files, such as
    etc, and then automatically space them one below the other. Many
    of my
    clients are in the field as motor vehicle assessors and take multiple
    pictures of vehicle repairs (up to about twenty per vehicle), process
    them to reduce their physical size, then paste them into a word
    processor and compile into a PDF before emailing to the insurance
    houses. MS Office can do this and has always done this with no issues
    whatsoever, but LO Writer simply dumps the images one on top of the
    other, with a lot of unnecessary work to have to drag and place each
    image in order below the previous one. And this is not consistent,
    sometimes Writer fails with a lot of photos (noticeably more than
    This lack of feature is now forcing many of my customers to return to
    MSO, and I feel it needs to be addressed and fixed.
