The behaviour that I am talking about is...
1. Insert value into A1, select the cell with the mouse so it is highlighted then copy with Ctrl-C 2. Select 3 or more other cells -- NOT in a continuous block (e.g. B2 and C3). 3. Try and paste with Ctrl-V and you will get the error "Insert into multiple selection not possible"

I checked and this functionality has been available since Excel 2000.

m$ excel allows content in cells a1, a3, a5 to be selected and copied

Actually in Excel when you copy A1, A3, A5 then paste to A7, it pastes
to A7:A9.  Calc does the same thing.

So, I'm not sure what feature is being requested here.  Can you clarify
a bit?
