Description of Problem:
copy-paste from MonoDevelop into LibreOffice is broken
Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Copy text containing Unicode characters from a document open in MonoDevelop
2. Paste the text into LibreOffice using either the standard paste command or Edit > Paste Special > Formatted text [RTF]
all Unicode characters are scrambled, e.g. "✔" becomes "笨能par" and "©" becomes "ﾂｩ"
contents of clipboard
How often does this happen?
tested on Ubuntu 12.04 only
Works for me on os x (That's where I currently work on)
2.8.6 is very outdated btw.
Ok we still have that bug - even in newer versions.
I don't know what I tested these days on os x - but we have this issue on all platforms.
It was caused by the rtf conversion of chars > 0x7F - that's fixed now.
