OpenOffice Writer copy/paste

Post by cernahoschi »

Hello,
I can't copy/paste. Have not MS Office installed and copy/paste is fine for Notepad for example. After the Writer is oppend and make a copy, for example text "1234" the paste is OK, but if the second copy is for "abcd" the paste text is also "1234" .
Thank you,
OpenOffice 4.1.3
Windows 10 version 1607 (OS build 14393.693)

Hi and welcome to the forum!

Yes, it's a known issue. See: [Issue] OOo doesn't paste last clipboard but previous.
There are 2 workarounds.

Can you confirm if it works for you also?

It is a very, very rare problem seen by only a tiny minority of people. It used to happen frequently to me on just one PC but it then stopped doing it and it has not happened for many years. I think it is probably partially caused by Windows.

See the Writer Guide, the Writer FAQ, the Writer Tutorials and Writer for students.

Remember: Always save your Writer files as .odt files. - see here for the many reasons why.

It happened for me once very recently on Windows 7 with AOO 4.1.3. It was the first and only time since I use OOo/AOO (I started in 2006).
