Whenever I try:
File -> Import -> LaTeX (clipboard)...
I'm presented with a dialog for selecting a latex file to import. Should it not import what I currently have on my clipboard? Or am I misinterpreting what this is supposed to do?
I'm running Lyx 2.3.3 on Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS through the Gnome 3 Desktop Environment. Do I need to change the Lyx settings to give it access to the clipboard? Copy and paste inside a Lyx document works as expected.
Obviously, this isn't a major issue. I can always use ERT (Crtl+l) or I can copy and paste LaTeX code into a file, save it and then import as normal via:
File -> Import -> LaTeX (plain)...
But it would be convenient to be able to create a new Lyx file by importing LaTeX code from the clipboard.
