I don't think I've changed anything from the defaults except for

What is particularly hitting me is the fixed line height.  I have my
sharedText set, and the text survives the paste with its formatting.  I set
the fixed line height to on, and 12, to match the court forms.

When I paste a group with a lot of label fields, most of the formatting
survives, but the line height goes back a default 14.   Also, the tighter
margins I set seem to be getting reset to defaults, causing the text not to
show in the field.
