Comment 1 Roan Kattouw 2013-07-20 04:56:16 UTC
The contents of the attached Word document, to the extent that LibreOffice will display them, seem to be:

The source code is as follows:
<ref>[ "History of the Vardo (Gypsy Caravan)"], ValleyStream Media, 2009</ref>

Was there a screenshot that you meant to include? Could you give us a link to the article? Could you explain the problem in more detail?
Comment 2 John Mark Vandenberg 2013-07-23 00:16:24 UTC
That ref is only on one page, in English and Thai"History of the Vardo"

And I was able to do a basic edit to that ref on Chrome Version 28.0.1500.72 m/Windows 7 Enterprise SP1, in Vector and Monobook

There must be something more specific needed to reproduce this.

Comment 4 John Mark Vandenberg 2013-07-25 12:55:59 UTC
This is similar to bug 33105 and bug 41193, but this bug is more specific as it is within the same window.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a reference with '[ example], publisher, year'
2. Open dialog for reference created in step 1
3. Copy the richtext reference and close the dialog
4. Insert reference anywhere, and paste the clipboard

Plain text paste 'example, publisher, year'

Expected results:
Richtext paste '[ example], publisher, year'
