    Hello,

    I think I’ve found a problem with how copy/paste is handled in WordPress’s Gutenberg editor. If you try to paste content that includes anything that’s been commented on in Microsoft Word, nothing happens.

    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Make a new Word document
    2. Type two paragraphs
    3. Highlight some text and add a comment on the second paragraph using Review -> New Comment
    4. Copy/paste the first paragraph into the WordPress post editor
    5. Copy/paste the second paragraph, with commented text, into the WordPress post editor

    What happens:
    – The first paragraph is copied successfully
    – Upon hitting paste with the second paragraph, nothing happens

    What should happen:
    – Both paragraphs should paste

    Versions:
    – WordPress 5.2.1
    – Microsoft Word 16.16.12

    Thank you!
