paste formatting to MS OneNote and Word

Not a priority, as I have the workaround.

If I copy a selection and paste to either of these MS applications, I get no separation between paragraphs.

What’s required is to do a text-only paste, which you can do with Paste Special in Word (2003), or by using the dropdown clipboard icon choice attached to the text right after paste in OneNote or Word.

I don’t know what you do to avoid this - maybe prioritize Text Only as recommended paste format, if your GUI framework lets you.

I suspect more would be happy with default this way, anyway, and then the HTML or whatever it is formatted paste would still be available.
