    This doesn't sound like normal Word behaviour irrespective of the options you have set. I would suspect that an addin is running which hijacks the paste command to force this into a Paste Special as Text Only.

    Try following the steps in this thread

    I have the same problem pasting tables. Any solution yet?

    I have exactly the same problem. When I copy a table, or portion of a table, and then paste it, it always pastes as unformatted text. This is new behaviour in the past couple of days. I have no add-ins or macros, and I re-named Normal.dot.

    Did you find a solution?

    Thanks

    Do you have Skype Click-to-Call installed? My understanding is that the company acknowledged the problem and issued an update. It affected Excel too:

    Thank you! Installing the update didn't help, I had to uninstall both Skype Click-to-Call and Skype itself, but Word is working normally again. So happy!
