Problem copying tables from a web page to libreoffice
I used libreoffice to take some notes from some manual. There wer some tables in the manual.
First I copied a table from the webpage and pasted it to a blank pre-created table (with the same column number as that in the webpage) in the writer, all its contents stayed in one cell:confused:
Then I copied the table and pasted to vim first, verified that the columns are tab-separated, I copied the table from vim to libreoffice, but all the contents were still in one cell:?
At last I decided to use a test case, I created a two-column table in libreoffice, and typed a<tab>b, it appeared as I expected, a in column 1 and b in column 2, then I typed a<tab>b in vim, and copied them to the tables in libreoffice, then got the result: a<tab>b in the first cell of the table:shock:
So I guess typing something into libreoffice writer and copying something to libreoffice writer are not the same case, but how can I get the tab-separated values into different columns when I justed copied it from elsewhere, cause it would save me a lot of work, thanks!
