Right-click to paste in Webex (teams) in multiple formats

It seems that there are several suggestions about pasting into Webex teams - one even erroneously marked as "Already Exists"! (It doesn't).

But the bit that is really annoying is that pasting text from Excel or Powerpoint (in macOS) gets pasted as a PICTURE - this is just STUPID and makes Webex look like it was written by a high-school dropout, and should not be considered as a serious corporate product.

But I want to move past the simplistic options of specific pasting from Powerpoint or Excel, and suggest that a Right-Click option be added to present and support:


Paste as...

  Plain Text
  HTML
  Picture (jpg)

Current Situation: (Macos)

  • Pasting from Powerpoint - text gets pasted as picture (jpg)
    - Text format SHOULD BE THE DEFAULT

  • Pasting from Excel - text gets pasted as picture (jpg)
    - Text format SHOULD BE THE DEFAULT

  • Pasting from Word - text gets pasted as plain text

  • Pasting from other sources - not tested

Current Situation (Windows)

Please give users some scope here to treat Webex as a mature product.
