Thanks. I’m a hosted customer and I can’t tell which version I’m on, but my Admin screen says it was last updated on September 1. I have tested the pasting from Chrome and Firefox on two different Windows 10 PCs.
But I just discovered that if I copy/paste just a few paragraphs at a time, the formatting and hyperlinks paste over into a new topic box correctly. Weird.
On Saturday, my temporary work around was to copy/paste the entire 5-page document text into another HTML editor (quackit.com), and then from there I re-selected the text and successfully copy/pasted it to Discourse.
So I have to conclude there’s something amiss in the paste-content function in Discourse for larger bodies of text?
