Why I can not copy formula from the input line in libreoffice so that I can use that in different file? I can select it but not copy it.

Thank you.

Ctrl+C can do the job.
this short cut is supported by the clipboard manager in gnome-settings-daemon.

LO doesn't provide a context menu in the formula input line, but all the actions from the "Edit" menu are available - among them "Copy", "Cut" and "Paste" with their corresponding shortcuts.
