The behavior you are seeing is because you are using two separate
instances of FrameMaker, so that the copy/paste operation has to 
use the Windows clipboard. If you copy and paste between two
different document windows in the same instance of FrameMaker,
the copy/paste operation is completely internal to FrameMaker 
and retains all formatting.

the text in the second instance of FM, the formatting disappears even
though the same pgfs are used in both places. Even tables lose their

What is happening here and how can I fix it?
