Cut and Paste picks up formatting

When I cut and past a word from my Research section, it copies the word as well as the preset tabs. Then it applies the tabs to that paragraph where I pasted the word. This is annoying when the tabs are set differently in these sections.

Cut/Copy always picks up the formatting, but you can use Edit > Paste and Match Style (Ctrl-Shift-V) to paste as plain-text, thereby picking up the formatting of whatever paragraph you’re pasting into.
