RichTextBox: Expose paste options
Create different options for pasting(keep formatting, merge formatting, use destination styles). At this point, the document default styles are not copied in the document fragment, thus their loss is observed. 

When DocumentInheritsDefaultStyleSettings is true and the font settings are like set to different font size/font family, copied text is pasted to MS Word with Verdana font, size 12. Loss of formatting is also observed when copying from RadRichTextBox and pasting in MS Word - the default styles differ.

Hi Rick,

Thank you for sharing that. The task is with pretty high priority in our backlog and it has good chances to be included in one of our next releases. Continue following this item so you can receive updates about changes in its status.

RadRichTextBox also provides spellchecking functionality. Have you tried it? Doesn't it fit your needs?

We are receiving this complaint constantly from our users. They copy and paste from the RichTextBox to Word to do a Grammar check and then copy and paste back into the RichTextBox and now all their fonts are Verdana.

Please make the changes needed to expose paste options. It makes no sense to deliver formatting from the clipboard that is not consistent with the source copied. We need control over this to deliver correct content to our users.

This is crucial for us, without it we have to look for another RTF control ..
