I just updated to 2.1.20 (from ~2.1.13), and am finding that Anki now pastes quite a bit more formatting than it did before. (Looking at the "Changes" page, it seems like this happened with 2.1.16.) For my own taste, some of this is excessive -- in particular, I often copy-paste material from Wikipedia for the back sides of my cards, and while it's nice to preserve boldface/italics/underline/superscript/subscript, I don't want to keep things like the font size of headers and the color of hyperlinked text (as now seems to happen). I know that I can just use Ctrl + Shift + v to strip all the formatting, and it's not the end of the world if I now need to do that and add the formatting I want by hand. But I'm wondering if there's any way to paste formatting more selectively that I'm not aware of (or if that option might be added in a later release). Thanks!

I'm afraid it's not currently possible to customize what is and isn't included, but this may come in the future.

Okay, thanks for the quick reply! I'll just say, then, that I would find this feature pretty useful, and suspect there are others who would as well.
