Comment 16 for bug 307005

@taylor: the problem you have is a bit different from what is described here:
word puts a bitmap copy of the copied text into the clipboard.

you can work around that by pasting the text into TextEdit first (or your favourite text editor which cannot possibly be word ;) ), then copy it again and paste to inkscape. so no need to step back to ink.46

but it sure might be related to this issue.. text in the clipboard should always take precedence over bitmaps.
