- I copy some text with more than one format
- I 'paste and match style' (into project notes, into another document)
- the pasted text is truncated at the format change
.. actually now I'm not so sure the format change has anything to do with it - the text is appears to truncated after the first paragraph whether there is a format change or not

Thanks, I've managed to reproduce this now and will get it filed. It looks like the problem is occurring when the selection includes the final paragraph marker. (You can see this if you turn on invisibles from Format > Options, or just take note when the insertion point is blinking at the beginning of the next line after the selection, rather than immediately at the end of the selection.) If you make the selection by dragging the mouse or using the keyboard with the Shift key depressed, you should be able to end the selection exactly at the end of the text you're copying (vs. Select All or a triple-click) and that ought to copy and paste correctly.
