Copy paste from Google doc is hard to edit in XWiki syntax

Hi everyone,

We have some users who copy/paste content into the wiki from working documents created elsewhere (Google being a big one). We’ve found that the content comes over fine, but afterwards it’s hard to add additional styling or change formatting in the WYSIWYG editor because it’s kept the formatting from Google. Related: ‘Why copying and pasting…looks different in XWiki’.

For example, in the source code for pasted content we see:

(% style="color:#000000; font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-size:11pt; font-style:normal; font-variant:normal; font-weight:400; text-decoration:none; white-space:pre-wrap" %)

Unless we remove all of the formatting (which is sometimes applied line by line), the content looks slightly different from the rest of the page and can’t be edited normally. If we change the editor from XWiki 2.1 to Markdown, we can copy the format-less content.

Is is possible to have the paste items (no formatting styles) option available when pasting content in? Is there a preferred way or suggestion for managing/removing all of this extra formatting quickly (on either the XWiki or the Google side)?
