When I use a plain text editor, and I paste, I get text.
When I use Word, AbiWord, Google (at work only, don’t worry, I’ve not gone crazy), when I paste, I always get styling. The font is specified, bold, font size, etc.
Do you know how often I’ve wanted paste with styling, rather than just the text?
I mean, in like, the last twenty years since people starting doing this shit?
NOT ONE FUCKING TIME, EVER.
I’m not kidding. In my *entire* life, I have never, NOT ONCE, needed or wanted this, and so EVERY TIME I’ve needed to paste, I’ve had to go through this farcical song and dance via a text editor. Often I then have a second fucking song and dance trying to get the stupid fucking WYSIWYG editor to also STOP USING THE FORMATTING FROM THE PASTE, which it desperately doesn’t want to do…
You guys who do this by default? you’re IDIOTS. *Please* stop being involved in any software which has a user interface.
