I have lot of fields that I have to handle like this and have found that a pasteKey handler in the field serves my purposes. It first does
put the clipboardData["text"] into tTemp
followed by various filtering and replacement, followed by
put tTemp into me
Which of course replaces the field with what you are pasting. If you want to append or insert, then a different put is needed.
By the way, at the end of every work day, I have constellations of Notepad documents open, that have done nothing except serve the purpose of stripping out Microsoft tagging from cut and paste tasks. It is almost a standing joke among my team. Yes, inelegant is the word, but apparently necessary.
