    Hey guys for some reason now when I paste some text from ms word into libre office writer (on Win 7) it inserts it as a picture, not text. I cannot edit it.

    I tried pasting it into another application and it worked. I managed to get it to work if I paste as special and choose rtf. I get editable text instead of an uneditable box of a picture of text (low res, I might add).

    I used to be able to paste text as text so something has changed.

    Hmm. I think it might be a setting somewhere... somewhere... I'll get back to you

    What happens if you're pasting in text NOT from m$ word?

    Sounds like it is treating your copy as an object instead of text.

    Is the source read only?
