User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.3) Gecko/20030312 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.3) Gecko/20030312 There seems to be an upper size limit on text/html clipboard import to the composer. But there may be more to it than that. From Gnumeric HEAD, I was able to paste a selection of length 3951 but failed for length 4290. From OpenOffice 1.1Beta2 Calc, I was able to paste a selection of length 1011 but failed for length 1121. Length is measured by (length (x-get-selection 'CLIPBOARD 'text/html)) in Emacs 21.2.1. I assume that it returns bytes. Both selections contain a table in an html body, UTF-8 encoded. OpenOffice is HTML 3.2, Gnumeric is XHTML 1.0 Transitional. I don't hit this size limit when pasting between Gnumeric and OpenOffice. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Mark a small range in spreadsheet and copy to clipboard 2.Paste into composer 3.Mark a bigger range and try again Repeat 3 until pasting fails. (length (x-get-selection 'CLIPBOARD 'text/html)) in the Emacs scratch buffer tells you how large the clipboard selection is. (x-get-selection 'CLIPBOARD 'text/html) tells you what it contains. Actual Results: For a big enough spreadsheet range, nothing shows up in composer Expected Results: a table should turn up in composer.
