I’ve been having some issues with pasting text into rich text elements. Maybe you’d like to look into it.
When trying to paste over an existing rich text, the text is blinking but not replaced.
When it’s pasted, there seems to be a big number of empty lines before, after and within.
When deleting lines or spaces, sometimes an empty paragraph element is appearing and I can’t get rid of it.

Whilst waiting for the Bugs team to take a look, i’ll refer you to this post which covers similar ground, see if there are any ideas there to help fix it:
I’m trying to copy/paste a few poems, nothing too long, into a text block. Sometimes the copy/pasting works, and sometimes it doesn’t. I’m not sure what the deal is, but I’ve tried it in multiple browsers. Anyone know what I should do?
Can you also update your post with the browser your are using
What browser am I using? What version is my browser? WhatsMyBrowser.org is the easiest way to find information about your browser, and share it to your designer, developer, or support rep.
Also, whether you have tried in
incognito modes, and finally your read-only link:

Great question, and I’m here to help!
Yes, you’re right “paste and match style” or copy a plain text would work. When you paste text inside of a RT element, it comes with many formatting attributes picked from its source.
To avoid issues, it’s best to paste raw text — text without formatting at all — in RT elements.
Also, copying from Google Docs would be best as the formatting of the rich text is better retained, excluding “title” text elements.
