2.9 - Pasting from Excel

Hi Folks,

This is likely to seem ridiculously simple. I use Excel a lot during the 
course of the day. Sometimes I need to cut and paste data from multiple 
rows and columns on an ad hoc basis and take it into Rev.

In prior versions of Rev the result was text not separated by tabs as 
you would expect and as you get if you paste into Notepad for example.

In fact for years that has been my workaround. Copy from Excel, paste 
into Notepad, then paste into Rev.

I had thought 2.9 might preserve the tabs but it does not. Am I missing 
something or is this the standard (and expected, and thus S.O.L) behavior?

Is there anything anyone can think of that could make this otherwise 
simple task, well, simple?
