Copy pasting text from Word pastes image

WHAT IS THE BUG

when I copy and paste text from Word in Anytype it pastes an image. I’ve tested it on pages and notes. When I copy-paste the same text from TextEdit it behaves as expected (it pastes texts)

HOW TO REPRODUCE IT

  1. Go to a document in Word
  2. Select and copy some text.
  3. paste the copied text into a page in Anytype
  4. you’ll see it’s pasted as an image

THE EXPECTED BEHAVIOR

The text being pasted as text (with the option to keep the format as the original document)

SYSTEM INFORMATION

  • OS: macOS 12.2.1

  • Device: Macbook Air M1

  • Anytype Version: 0.29.1

ADDITIONAL CONTEXT

People have mentioned similar issue with Onenote
I followed the same workaround: to copy-paste from Word to a text editor and then from there to Anytype which is a hassle.
thank you

Hi @3p2 and welcome to the Community.

I suspect it’s a formatting compatibility issue from different applications, which we are working to improve.

Indeed. Alternatively you should be able to use Ctrl + Shift + V to copy without formatting, but still not an ideal solution.

Do you mind sharing a screenshot or screen recording of your encounter with this?

Thanks
