Subject: Re: [libreoffice-users] Help with two issue I am finding in LO
That's it, you got it, what I (and all of my customers using LO) are
And this behaviour happens whether posting from the web or locally from
the hard drive. What I find strange, is that if there is already a laid
out document (locally), or a web page with text and pictures, they will
cut/copy and paste correctly and lay out in the new document. LO seems
to preserve (within reason for the different formats) the format of a
previously created document.
This seems to only happen when one is creating a "new" document with
text, and one wants to paste in images of any sort. And as I
my post, if you choose too many images, it seems to stall and sometime
crash LO Writer, I think because they are being stacked on top of each
other, it causes a resource overflow (my opinion of what I think is

I just had a look at the writer issue. Keeping it simple I downloaded
2 images from the web into my downloads folder.
I opened a new writer document, went to my file browser and selected
both images (FWIW a jpg & a gif). When I pasted into writer the 2nd
image was pasted on top of the first. Is that what you see? I expected
to see the images separated in some way.

Ok, at least I have a comrade with the same observation and non

of continuous habit on my behalf in using this in the input line, and
a family raised from school level on MSO, as well as my wife very
proficient in MSO, all pointed this out to me. So I find it not
sufficient to leave it out, as I said it works in other versions of
spreadsheet programs, so why not LO.
Have you tried the Writer issue I have, with pasting multiple images
into it, try it. Another program non-feature/problem that needs to be
Thanks for the feedback.

I agree regarding the calc issue. I tried this on 184.108.40.206 under
Fedora and 220.127.116.11 portable under Windows. Neither allow you to
right click on the input line. As you noted, CTRL-C works. So, I
cranked up LO18.104.22.168 under XP. Same.
The only thing I noticed is that you can right click on the cell
itself. No need to go up to the input line. I wonder if this is
deemed to be sufficient.

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
Windows version, and Ubuntu Raring versions of LO, so a common
occurrence. And it has persisted since I migrated over to LO. Your
responses will assist me before I send this as a bug report,
In Calc, I cannot copy and paste any data content out of the input
line 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 lot of pricelists and other similiar type
spreadsheets, and paste into order sheets or directly into emails
for my business, and I find now the only workaround is to highlight
the content and Ctrl c to copy it, or using 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 well.
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 photos 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 five). 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.
