LibreWriter & Copy/Paste

Postby ccline19 » Thu Jan 24, 2013 11:25 am

I ran across an issue where some elements on a web page using Chrome (Latest stable) and/or Firefox do not paste in to a Libre document. Has anyone else ran into this issue or is this a limitation to Libre writer?

I have managed to narrow it down to certain elements that are not pasting into a document. If I try to copy/paste a text field, select box, or a drop-down box it just doesn't work. No error is generated from writer.

Sorry I am not sure what you are trying to achieve. If I copy the text from your thread I can paste it into Writer. Alternatively you can do a screen print and paste that into writer or you can use the file, save page as facility in Firefox and then open the html in Writer.
