    Here, I did some digging and found the bug already reported: https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/42996

    It’s a problem with TinyMCE, reported upstream at https://github.com/tinymce/tinymce/issues/2810

    With that said, some formatting loss when pasting from Microsoft Word to WordPress is to be expected. That’s not my opinion, nor a cop-out, that’s a fact from supporting this for over 13 years, and that’s why I didn’t bother to search until I read your reply. Now we know.

    You’ve compared TinyMCE to a lot of editors that are doing it better, and I agree with you. Those are paid products with a paid staff developing them though. TinyMCE is an open source project developed by volunteers, and they could use some help: https://github.com/tinymce/tinymce/issues
