Bug Description

Binary package hint: tomboy

PROBLEM

Formatted text (with italics, underlining, etc.) loses all formatting when pasted into Tomboy. This makes copying quotes and passages into Tomboy problematic, as some of the meaning is lost unless the text is manually reformatted.

HOW TO REPRODUCE

1. Copy-and-paste any block of text that includes special formatting into Tomboy.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR

Text that is copied-and-pasted into Tomboy will retain basic formatting that doesn't break Tomboy's simplicity.
