Thanks for your quick response.

Yes, it still looks like I can run my reports, so this is not a workflow show-stopper. However, it is a productivity (or lack of) issue. Starting from scratch to make a new report with a minor change, such as a new "sort", when I could just copy and modify an existing report, is not fun.

AHA! I just thought of a work-around and it seems to work. I opened the existing report in "Edit" mode and then did a "Save-As" on it and got the new report, which I can now edit without affecting the old report.

Thanks for the help and inspiration.

This is under Ubuntu 18.04, and I also checked with a couple of newer
versions of LibreOffice, again though only with hsql and firebird embedded
(in some of the newer versions) databases.

I have no problem doing a copy/paste of a report, either into the same ODB
or into a different ODB.

So it is only reports. I assume you can run those RB reports with your
current installation without problem.

I just realized I can no longer copy a Base report and paste it as a new
report for modification. I do not get the "Insert as" dialog popup to
change the destination report name. No error, no nothing - as if I never
did the paste. I tried the mouse popup, ctrl-v, and the edit > Paste
functions. None worked. This feature works for all but reports. This
worked fine on older versions, but I do not know where it broke. What
happened to this valuable feature and is there another way to do a
report copy-paste?
