AKICILJ: Open Office, copy/paste weirdness  
Received from a friend; posted with permission. Open Office running on Windows 7.

Using the Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V shortcuts to cut and paste from Open Office to (for specific instance) Semagic results in all of the formatting commands and (possibly) HTML codes to appear in the pasted text.

I know nothing about Open Office, so I don't have a clue where to start with this one. Any ideas?

I think the problem is that she wants to retain the formatting, but not see all the markup codes (e.g., she's copying a formatted poem or essay from the Open Office word processor into Semagic to post to LJ). However, I'll mention this as another option.
