I have found a number of superuser.SE and SO questions related, e.g. 360488, but none of the older topics appear to work with Office365.
Quite specifically: I can paste a bunch of color-syntaxed text from code editors such as Notepad++ . Word treats that text as Normal style with color 'overrides' manually applied. I want to be able to apply a Style which does not try to set any font property - I just want to set the text to NoProofing and possibly add background, border, etc.
Is there any way to Define a Paragraph (or Linked) Style that will leave the font properties alone?
Alternatively, is there some way to set the default Style that is applied to the text I'm pasting in? So far as I can tell, pasting formatted text always sets it to Normal.
