I am also rebuilding from OL. And although I did paste the text into notepad first, it still won't format correctly. I am pasting text into a table cell and it won't un-bold. I tried recreating the table, pasting into different cells - nothing works. Alas, no aggravation spared with the dismal 365 editor...
