Michael,

It is expected behavior.  I suppose that it could be improved.

The basic limitation is this.  When you copy from most word processors, the
word processors will put several forms of the text on the clipboard (e.g.
text, rich text, and a proprietary format).  We look only at the plain text.
So copying and pasting is most analagous to importing a document that has
been saved as "text with line breaks", to use the MS Word term.

Hi,

We are working with a document that has several lines of bold text in them.
When we open the document we get the expected [fts~b] codes.
However when we paste the document we do not. It is my understanding that
this information is available from the clipboard. Is this a bug of some
sort, or expected behavior?
