Copy and Paste from Microsoft OneNote


We use Microsoft OneNote for a lot of our development notes and tracking Change Requests. However we cannot copy and past from OneNote directly into any Test Rails text fields - the copy from OneNote appears to be ok, but the text is always pasted as an image into Test Rails
We have to copy into another editor (e.g. NotePad++) and then copy from there into TestRails.
Has anyone else had this problem - or been able to resolve it?


Problem seems to be with only with Chrome Browser?
The solution is to use Ctrl-Shift-V to paste, to ensure it pastes as text rather than an image.
Not sure why text from OneNote comes over as a picture by default with Chrome, and not Internet Explorer or Edge.
