    I've noticed that the comment window attempts to keep the existing formatting when pasting text from elsewhere. This is nice when you need to keep that formatting and/or any links in text. However, often times there is no need to keep the formatting and it ends up making the comment difficult to read. Missing or additional carriage returns, coupled with various font sizes and colors are less than ideal in many cases. Perhaps a button that removes formatting would be helpful? As of now, I've had to paste text into a text editor (like notepad) and then re-copy and paste to get a readable comment. Ideally, you would still be able to use the formatting buttons to reformat the text (bold/italic/bullets/etc) after pasting.

    What problem will this feature solve?:
