'Unformatted text' from 'Unknown source'?
One obvious possibility is that the copy action did not take place
properly and that you are pasting previous clipboard contents,
apparently from a different source. That would be easy, as the copy
action gives no obvious feedback. Do you use a keyboard shortcut to
copy? Does your keyboard need attention or replacement? Or do your
fingers, er, ... ?
I have had this problem off and on when copy/pasting numbers between
.csv files and .ods spreadsheets, but even then it isn't every time.
Do you have your .csv file open in LibreOffice - in which case it
will have (default) formatting - or in a plain text editor - in which
case it won't?
I trust this helps.
