I refer to issue 4775
This is really annoying. Pasting text from a Word document was not an issue up to some weeks ago. Why has it changed? Even if Ctr V works you loose every editing.
I would like to use the buttons as I did before.

This is confirmed in other sites too. (e.g. http://thymus.myspecies.info)
Once the user clicks in the tinyMCE editor the paste option becomes unavailable and cannot be used. This prevents carrying over text from other editors into Scratchpads.

Unfortunately, there's nothing we can do about this as it's a new security feature implemented by the browser. Essentially they've decided a website should not have access to the contents of a user's clipboard - so the tinyMCE editor disables the paste option. It's very annoying, and hopefully the security policy will be relaxed in the future.
