Pasting a text makes it loose its formatting
mac OS 10.14.3 running AI 23.0.2
The issue seems to be random and can't replicate every time.
If I copy a group formed by a path and text sometimes, when pasting, the path is expanded (?) and the text loses its format.
When pasting "in Front" or "in Back" sometimes works but ussually pastes in the left upper corner of the artboard.
When pasting a text in any possible way (in Front, in Back, in Place ... ) all format is missing.
The result is a little task consuming double or more time as the expected, delaying my performance and productivity. Plus the frustration that comes with it.
Cristoffer, if this still happens for you, can you please check if you have Include SVG Code option enabled in Preferences > Clipboard handling. Does it help to toggle it?
Also — do you have any clipboard managers installed and enabled?

I tried to go back to the previous working version, 2017, and now I understand other complaints I've seen. When pasting, sometimes instead of pasting what I've copied, it pastes the text that describes the copied content, like opening an SVG with a text editor.
