Re: How to paste formatted (rich) text to Zim editor? (Feature request?)
I had a similar issue with text pasted from PowerPoint, which is
pasted as image. It's something related to the "source" program, not
to Zim Wiki. If you search for messages posted by me, you should see
the answer I got at the time I posted about this strange behaviour
(sorry, I can't remember what it was).
