Copy and paste not bringing across structure/formatting
When copying and pasting text from another program (e.g. Microsoft Word) into Dreamweaver CC 18.1, the structure is not coming across into HTML tags and pasting everything in <p> tags.
Even if the Word document is correctly using styles for heading levels, bulleted lists and even tables, none of the structure is coming across. It is reverted into just single lines of text within <p> tags.
I attempted to even copy and paste from a web page which contained appropriate structure for heading level etc. but Dreamweaver is still not bringing across the relevant HTML tags.
This is a pretty big problem as I'm now not able to copy and paste in the "design" view of Dreamweaver and making tables from scratch takes a considerable amount of time.
I am still very much able to use HTML source code to copy and paste into the 'Code' view but I am not able to do this when customers are supplying me with new content via Word documents. I have to re-insert all the structure manually again.
Even after changing the preferences to any of the edit > paste functions, none of them seem to change the outcome.
I have attempted to attach a Word document that shows the issues via screen captures.
Thank you for your time.
Thanks for reporting.
We are sorry that you are facing issues with Dreamweaver.
However, we are not able to see this issue at our end.
Could you please upgrade to latest Dreamweaver version DW 18.2 and see if it resolves the issue.
Having the same issue here. Copy and paste does not preserve formatting between Google Docs or MS Word (source) and Dreamweaver 20.2 (destination). All line breaks and formatting are stripped and it is pasting as plain text, even when pasting in live view. Please advise!
I'm having the same issue. It just pasts into one <p> tag - no formatting at all. Please post the solution to this.

Hi Ben , Krista.
We followed the steps mentioned above however we are not able to reproduce this issue (DW 18.2.1 and onward)
Attached a video for reference, please let us know if you are trying some different way
Also if you are using DW 20 , please use live view to paste any content copied from external source.
Also we can connect remotely and try to debug in your system , please respond.
Wow, that's the answer? I am having the same problem. Would be nice if you could post a real answer.
