Maintain text formatting when copying and pasting from edit mode (rich text)
- XD 0.5.4.51
- Inside a text block select text with either a multiple fonts or a font that is different from the target text block. Copy your selection. Next go into a different text block that has the different font selection than what you copied. Paste.
- It should retain the font selection from before you copied.
- It changes all the pasted font to the font selection of the target text block.

Having this exact issue...I am copying/cutting text (a bullet caret character from fontawesome) and trying to paste it in front of my list items in a text box and the formating and font is lost. I am left with a question mark character and I have to manually select and reset the font back to fontawesome as well as change the color.
The suggestion below to copy and paste the text object as a whole doesn't work because I need to be able to paste in text that has been formatted differently from the target text box. I will look on the feature request to see if this has already been requested.
Thanks a lot for the feedback!
At the moment, if you copy text in editing mode, it is considered to be plain text, without any formatting and pasting it into another text box will be performed with applying the destination style.
To preserve text attributes, you could copy and paste the text object as a whole.
If you think that we should change the current behavior, please add a feature request in UserVoice. This way, we will be able to track and prioritize it.
