What version of Thunderbird, LO, and Windows[ if that is your OS] do you have installed? That might help.

     Thunderbird 24.3.0
OS is
     Linux Mint  16 with MATE

Works fine with "paste".
The formatted text was kept.

One post states that this has been "reported a zillion times". So it seems to me that it might be "system specific", if one system works while others do not.

I deal with that myself. My laptops upgraded to Ubuntu 13.10 just fine, but the desktop kept giving me too many errors. Did that the last time I upgraded the Os on the desktop. It should have worked like the laptops but it did not. That is another case of "system specific" of a issue with one system while 2 others running the same OS and having the same packages installed would not work.

So, to be honest, "system specific" issues and "bugs" are hard to find the cause and correct the issue. It could be something with the install of Thunderbird and/or LO. I know the last version of TB I had issues that the save version on a different OS does not have. I know that some packages run well with Win7 Pro while I have issues with Win7 Home [both laptops].

I hope it gets fixed for your system.

Hi :)
Perhaps time to post a bug-report?  Thomas and Graham, have you tried
an earlier version of LibreOffice and found no problem there? Have
you tried pasting into a text-editor as an intermediary before posting
into the final app?  Are you all also on Win7 x64?

When you copy do you use the mouse right-click to do the copy bit or
keyboard short-cut or the edit menu?
Regards from
Tom :)

If I were to try an earlier version, I would have to uninstall 4.2 first ... and I am too lazy for that now.
Yes, I tried copying the text portion into an editor and THEN into TH.
Works fine.
I am old and still on XP, 32 bit. But I have also a Win 7 note PC (also 32 bit) and can try it there.

Good afternoon
I recently upgraded to LO 4.2.xx
As far as I can recall, I have NEVER had any problems selecting text
portions (or all of it) in LO and then copy that portion into a TB mail.
However, no matter what I try now, this does NOT work.
NOTHING happens.

But the same procedure works, using Openoffice Write, MS Word, text
editors (naturally), even copying from PDF files works ...

So, what is this all about?
How is this supposed to be "fixed"?

Thank you.
Works for me in on Win 7 x64 no matter which paste option I use
in Thunderbird.
