I have Open Office 2.4 and when I use the Writer and try to paste in text from an email it puts it in as a table. I can't edit it or do anything with it except delete. I can take the same text block and paste it into notepad and then recopy it from notepad and then it pastes in fine. I don't know if it is a problem in any of the Open Office uses like spreadsheet or what as I really don't use them. It does the same thing if I click and select all or if I mouse over the selection and try that way. I'm not really that technically oriented, though I've been using computers for a long time. I'm the kind of user that installs the program however the default setting install it and start using it. I looked in the Help for something but didn't see anything that seemed to fit the problem. It may just be a coincidence but I noticed it after I had a trojan problem (resolved by the folks on the Malware Team) last week. I don't think the program did any updates or anything since then. It seems to be fine other than that. Though I don't do it alot it is a bit of a bother like this. As I said, it only seems to happen when I get the text from an email (and I have tried from several different ones) Any suggestions would be great. Thanks.
