Gnumeric can save as many data types. It would be nice, though, if I
could copy data to the clipbord in more than one way. For example, I use
LaTeX a lot. If I could do ``copy special'' and have an option of ``copy
as LaTeX'', then I could just paste a table into my Emacs window.

Comment 1 Jody Goldberg 2001-02-01 20:39:32 UTC
This is a good idea for working with other X applications.  We should 
do this eventually.
Comment 2 Andreas J. Guelzow 2001-12-05 16:23:07 UTC
This doesn't answer the real enhacement request, but to use the tables
with latex you may just want to export them as latex2e and \input them
in your latex file. (see the exported file for the packages required)

I'd "copy special" as "plain text" a lot, so I don't have to deal with the corresponding problem at the far end...
