i wrote a bugzilla about this... There's more than one clipboard problem 
in Rev...

In there cases, just try to put the clipboarddata into your field instead 
of the usual paste.
But you will loose all the styles...

        Subject:        pasting text from clipboard


I have come across a strange occurance when pasting text from the 
clipboard of Win XP to a field in Rev.
The text is pasted with a much larger font size than the properties of the 
field, also it doesn't change when 
you try setting the text size of the field after pasting the text. The 
field is set to font type: Tahoma with font size:11,
when pasting the text looks more like size 16+, this obviously screws up 
the line height aswell.

This really messes with the look of things, does anyone know of a 

Cheers Dwayne....
