I can't think of RISC OS apps that do it but you can achieve it 
between MSWord and Xara - MSWord offers Xara a choice of plain text or 
Metafile and if you choose Metafile you get something like what you 
started with.

Agreed,  but if ArtWorks supported one of the text markup formats eg 
DDL, DDF, or RTF then it could achieve the preservation of styles with 
drag and drop.

It works between EasiWriter and Publisher+. (Save as RTF from EW and 
drop the icon on to Publisher.)
