many + signs
In OpenOffice, create a small table with text in cells a1, a2, b1, b2, c2.
Copy only the rows of the table.
Paste into VE.
- the view immediately in VE is of unusable information and some "+" characters apparently indicating cell boundaries.
- the view in the "Review your changes" panel is of a swath of white space with the contents of the table interspersed.
- User tendency is to copy entire contents of rows, yielding many empty cells. VE dutifully tracks these empty cells and displays an enormous number of "+" symbols in the immediate view and mostly empty space in the "Review your changes" view.
- Upon save, no table is in the page when pasting from OpenOffice.
Other anomalous results are reported when pasting from the Apple Pages application. From another user:
"...number of cells didn't match the number of columns. Since they don't match, tried to delete the cells in order to recover the blank page, but they won't delete."
