The behavior of both CTRL+V and CTRL+SHIFT+V is, in my experience, random and unpredictable. If I highlight and copy the content of my post directly above using CTRL-C and paste it into a
<p> element in BSS using CTRL+V, I get the following:
If I paste it using CTRL+SHIFT+V, I get the following:
If I first paste it into a Windows .txt file, I get the following:
If I highlight and copy the text from the Windows .txt file using CTRL+C and paste it into BSS using CTRL+V, I get the following:
If I highlight and copy the text from the Windows .txt file using CTRL+C and paste it into BSS using CTRL+SHIFT+V, I get the following:
There is no rhyme or reason to how this works. In the first example, all the
<br>s were removed from the body of the text, but one was added before, and one was added after. In the other examples, no
<br>s were added before or after, but multiple
<br>s were added in between the paragraphs, regardless of whether I used CTRL+V or CTRL+SHIFT+V.
I have given up on trying to figure out how/why BSS formats text pasted from outside sources. I simply go in and manually edit it after it has been pasted.
I accept that BSS is not a text editing program, but I have 10 year old website builder that has a built-in text editor so that when you create a
<p> element and paste raw, unformatted text into it, you get EXACTLY what you copy. No unpredictable or extra line breaks are added.
I think that a considerably more modern and sophisticated program like BSS should be able manage the same thing.
