In my experience (Mac) there are always some problems when pasting 
text (formatted or not) from outside sources like TextEdit etc. in the IDE.

Whenever I paste some text from "outside" this takes a couple of seconds 
until the text appears in the target field and most of the time even the 
"Beachball Of Death" appears for a short moment, not inspiring much 
confidence really!
