Libreoffice Select to Copy

Postby shikmehmet » Tue Dec 04, 2012 9:22 am

Hi guys,

I really like and make use of the selecting text just highlighting it, and then on another page simply pasting it in with the middle click.

I find with libreoffice i can't do this, i can select something out side of libre and then paste it in with the middle click, but if i want to copy somethnig from Libre i always have to right click - copy,

does anyone know a way around this
Kind regards all

Just tried this on my system and it works as you want. To check the settings open an office document ( say writer ) and go to tools, options and select the view option. On the right hand side you will see the settings for Mouse middle button, mine is set to paste to clipboard.
