Not sure what could be happening here, Karen. What platform are you on? 
And what specific types of formatting are you using and losing?

When I copy a two-page Word document on OS X containing bold and 
italicized type and paste it into a scrolling field in Rev, all the 
formatting is retained. So I can't reproduce your problem. If you 
provide more specifics, perhaps we can nail this down for you!
