I adore and constantly use the "strip paragraphs and formatting" paste option when dealing with entering data from PDFs - mostly because of the hard line wraps that come out of PDF. However, I really wish that there were an option that got rid of the line wraps but kept some basic formatting, while still conforming to the basic formatting (e.g., font style and size) of Realm Works. The basic model I'm thinking of is the "Merge Formatting" special paste option in MS Word.

What I would like to see in particular is holding onto bold, italics, and underline information, while still stripping the hard returns, and making the font match the rest of Realm Works. In my case, I work with Pathfinder PDFs and it would be particularly nice to keep the italicized spell names and magic items.

blank lines should be identified as paragraph separators, rather than removing every single one :-)

+1 for a "merge formatting" option

LW really needs a community feedback and polling system with voting and such

Legend has it, that the Tarrasque is a huge fighting beast, perpetually hungry.
Sleet entered History when he managed to get on the back of a Tarrasque only to be ridden out of History shortly after.

Using Realm Works, Worldographer (Hexographer 2), LibreOffice, Daz3D Studio, pen & paper for the realm World of Temeon and the system LEFD - both homebrewed.

Yes, something like User Voice would be much better that responding "+1" to a post in a forum.

I saw that a while back after I purchased RW and began looking through posts to glean what information I could. If the forum software is part of the issue, at least that's what I understood from what Liz posted, then is there a possibility of moving to a forum solution that would allow for those type of functionalities? I know it's a HUGE pita to move a forum from one software to another, but if it's limiting your options, it may be worth it.

If not, I know I came across some community feedback third-party solutions when I was doing some research for a client of mine not too long ago, I'll definitely look at my notes and see if any of those solutions would be a good fit.
