Post Copy verses formatting problem on LibreOffice Writer
A user reported a problem when trying to paste verses to LibreOffice Writer using Copy Verses dialog. Writer can't understand the formatting and pastes plain text only. I can reproduce the problem on LibreOffice 5.3.0.3 using theWord 5.0.0.1481. He says it used to work before. Since it works OK on Microsoft Word, I can assume LibreOffice changed something on recent versions. Is there anything that can be done about this?

Doesn't seem to work for me in LibreOffice 5.2.5.1 either.

Apparently it is a bug with LibreOffice 5.2+ that will hopefully be fixed on 5.3.1, or at least 5.4.

So unfortunately I guess you either have to wait, roll back to whatever the last LibreOffice version before the 5.2 series, or use another word processor application.

No problem. I use LibreOffice also, but never noticed the bug as I don't use it that extensively, but it bugs me (is that a pun?) that I can't paste formatted if I wanted to. (That's what I like about theWord, it works. And if for some rare reason it doesn't. Costas fixes it.)

So anyway I downloaded LibreOffice 5.1.6: https://www.libreoffice.org/download/do ... lang=en-US and it works.

If you want to wait, LO 5.3.1 is planned to be released Feb 27, 2017 - Mar 5, 2017

and LO 5.4.0 Jul 24, 2017 - Jul 30, 2017

I don't know if I'll test the next versions or not. I've been trying to stick with the stable or "Still" versions.
