This needs to be added on the next update without question.
Which every way it is implemented, menu item (edit paste and match style) control (right click) function, custom functionality or otherwise.
I should be able to have copy, raw copy with no formatting in my file, and be able to paste it into another text box with the ability to retain the destination formatting.
Practically every other program has this type of functionality, even Powerpoint, Word, and several others.
Thank you for your help in resolving this oversight. I have lived with this for decades and have finally come to the point in my career where I can no longer work in Illustrator without this type of functionality.
For example, in InDesign, this is accomplished by "paste in place" which isn't perfect.
In my email program, the work around is "command, option, shift, V" which retains the destination formatting. There has to be a way to implement this into Illustrator.
Thanks for your help.
Please contact me if anyone on your team would like to discuss this issue.
