Formatting text in posting questions/answers

When copying from website to doc, Word allows me to format to the doc I’m copying to, the destination. It would be a nice touch to be able to do that here. When I copy something here, I have to reformat it so it will somewhat match the destination. (Not too large or colorful, etc.) Just an idea.

Formatting issues also arise when cutting and pasting within G2G itself as the differing fonts/sizes in these two paragraphs show.

I can't get anything to paste here (at all) anymore!  :(
I can from both my iPad (hard) and my desktop (easy). What are you using, Vincent?

Hi Vincent, Hold the ctrl key plus the V key to paste, to copy hold the ctrl plus the C key or hold the ctrl key right click and click paste. The way to copy and paste changed with the last update to the G2G Forum Software.
