Copying and pasting from Scrivener into Gmail loses all formatting.

I find that when copying and pasting from Scrivener into gmail, all formatting is lost, including just basic bold and italics.

I am needing to first paste it into Word, and then copy that into gmail, which then pastes with the correct formatting, albeit with other artifacts that Word introduces into the conversion process.

Is there no way to just paste simple bold formatting from Scriv into gmail without the need for an intermediate relay?
