How to paste text into a blog post (4 posts)

    Since I've upgraded to 3.0.1 I can't seem to work out how to paste in text to a new post.

    There used to be a 'paste text' button which didn't seem to work properly at all at first, but then I managed to work it out pretty much, but now that's gone!

    Any ideas?

    Thanks, Jon

    Might be on the wrong path here, but can you not simply click in to the text box and press 'Ctrl+v' on your keyboard to paste what you have copied?

    Yeah, sorry, should have been more specific - I just loose all the text's settings and format, and nothing I do can get them back or alter the text in any way. Very annoying.

    You have two options for the text editor in WP - Visual and HTML. Which are you using? HTML, obviously, will not keep any of the text formatting, but Visual should.
