Formatting issues with Composition mode when copy/pasting

Hi - i have formatted my composition mode to have a dark gray background and white text. When i copy/paste text from one scrivener project into another, convert the text to default using ‘document > convert > text to default formatting’ and then go to composition mode to work, the pasted text is black and covered in a dark box. How can i get pasted text to just fall in line with the formatting i have already set up for composition mode?

Have you tried Paste and Match Style in the Edit menu, rather than just Paste? That should paste the text and not the formatting.

that seems to work, thank you!
