If a straight paste (Ctrl+v) pastes only text, maybe you've changed the
ClipboardFormatsPriorities setting in maker.ini to make text the
preferred format. That's how mine, below, is set up: 

ClipboardFormatsPriorities=TEXT, MIF, RTF, FILE, OLE 2, EMF, META, DIB,

I don't even recall what the default order is (I think it had TEXT
last). Personally, I want to be sure that anything coming from the
Windows Clipboard (i.e., not from one FM doc to another) comes in
without any formatting or baggage -- more often than not, it's from
Word. :-) 

If your ClipboardFormatsPriorities setting looks like mine, try moving
TEXT to the end. 

That being said, I share Art's skepticism about your use of two
instances of FM.
