Ability to paste with behavior like Word's "Merge Formatting"

Right now pasting anything strips all formatting to produce plain text.

It would be useful to have a “rich” paste command that preserves basic formatting, such as bold, italic, underline, bulleted/numbered lists, and existing hyperlinks, while dropping stuff like text size. In Microsoft Word this is known as “Merge Formatting”, a compromise between “Keep Source Formatting” and “Keep Text Only”.

This could use an alternate shortcut such as Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + V, sharing the same mode as Ability for links to be pasted with page's title.


I often copy content that contains a format. Is it possible to keep the format when I paste it into a note?
