I am moving from Libre Office to OnlyOffice and have loved it so far! Very clean UI and things work well. It is slightly slower to load and save files vs Libre but the pros outweigh the cons and I would like to stick with OnlyOffice.
Two features I greatly miss and which have been slowing down my workflow is the ability to press CTRL+SHIFT+V to paste plain text with no formatting. Instead I have to normal CTRL+V and then move my mouse onto the screen and click the drop down menu of the pasted text and change it to plain text. Very slow and a basic feature that should be included.
My second complaint is that I can’t snap a window to a side panel of my screen. For example, with LIbre office I was able to I drag the window to the side of my screen and my computer OS would realize it wanted to make the window 1/2 the screen size so another window like an internet browser can be on the other 1/2. OnlyOffice isn’t able to collapse down to a reasonable size that allows for multitasking and when I need to work on something I have to toggle between windows.
If these two are a feature and I just am doing something wrong, please correct me. Otherwise, these are two wonderful ideas that I have seen in pretty much every other program and software on my computer. I am not sure why OnlyOffice isn’t implementing these.
I would like to note that I am another person missing greatly a keyboard shortcut for pasting plain text! I’m writing here so that not to flood the forum with similar topics.
After using LibreOffice and Google Docs intensively, I’m used to pasting text with the Ctrl + Shift + V combination. I know that this combination is currently set for pasting formatting in OnlyOffice (and it seems unusual). If changing this behaviour is not an option, then, probably, a setting could be introduced to always paste plain text by default.
Lack of the suggested shortcut or setting was extremely annoying when I was pasting web links into footnotes. When user pastes text into footnotes, no floating button appears to select pasting mode, so web links are pasted as titles of web pages. I had to paste them into Windows Notepad first, to get plain text web links. This behaviour might be a bug, by the way.
Another keyboard shortcut I am missing in OnlyOffice is Shift + F3 for quickly converting the selected text to uppercase, lowercase etc. It is available in LibreOffice, MS Office, MS WordPad and doesn’t seem to be set for any other function in OnlyOffice.
In summary, I propose:
changing the Ctrl + Shift + V keyboard shortcut to pasting plain text and (or) introducing a setting to always paste plain text by default;
fixing the missing floating button when text is pasted into footnotes;
adding the Shift + F3 keyboard shortcut for converting text case.
I would appreciate if my proposals could be conveyed to the developers
Hello @Alfozavr !
I will forward your seggestions to our developers. My question is regarding the second suggestion: could you please provide more details about it? If possible, could you illustrate the result you want to get with screenshots or a screencapture video?
Thank you for the provided information. Our QA specialists confirmed the bug and registered it in our internal bug tracking system. It will be solved in one of the future releases. Thank you for the cooperation!
Dear Kate, here is an update on the bug with the missing floating button when text is pasted into footnotes. In the latest desktop version (18.104.22.168), the floating button is no more missing when text is inserted in footnotes. However, it may appear in a wrong place depending on the footnote (upper or lower) in which the text is being pasted. Two screenshots are attached to illustrate this.
Hello, it is almost a year now since this response and still there is no ‘CTRL+SHIFT+V’ for unformatted paste (or special paste). I don´t consider this to be a trivial feature. One of the reasons i abandoned Freeoffice is that they also refuse to support this feature. The fact that your dev-team still hasnt implemented this tiny improvement (at most 3 or 4 lines of code) shows a disregard for user requests, sorry to put it this hard but it is true.
Please accept our apologies for the length of the situation. Indeed, we’re still working on it and I hope we provide the solution as soon as possible.
I will update this thread when we have something to share.
Dear @Nikolas, thank you for the notification! I’m excited about the addition of the Ctrl+Shift+V shortcut for inserting text without formatting! And I see that this release has a bunch of other noticeable enhancements! Excellent news!
