I'd like to copy some text from one document into another, but when I click on paste, or press ctrl+v nothing happens.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.
Libreoffice 5.1.1-1
gnome with wayland (but I can reproduce the error with X11)

Steps to reproduce:
Open two new documents, type some text than copy it, and try to paste it into the other document.
This task depends upon

Sound like a GNOME issue. Have you tried it anywhere else?

Works here for me with i3-wm. This should be assigned to Gnome maintainers.

upstream bug, bug in GTK3 VCL in libreoffice, because after uncomment "export SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN=gtk"
in /etc/profile.d/ (also switching to GTK2 UI) copy-paste works.
