      I always struggle with this in all of the Office applications. In other Office apps, when pasting, you can choose 1 of 3 options:
      • Keep Formatting
      • Match Destination Formatting
      • Keep Text (or image) only

      Considering I copy/paste mostly text, you'd think that I'd change the default paste style to "Keep Text Only", but that means when you go to paste an image, the default paste give you nothing because it's only an image.

      What I propose is that when the clipboard only contains text, just paste it without any formatting, period. When I paste an image, let me paste an image; note: for Skype for Business though, it would be an attachment instead.

      As long as this works the same way as pasting for Outlook, etc., then I'm happy. User interface 101 says that things should work the same as other applications on a given platform.

      It would be fantastic if paste unformatted was the default. Almost every time I paste something I have to delete it and repaste, because skip for business keeps the most recent formatting if I don't

      This can also be controlled through Client policies on your SfB server. Just ask your admin to create a new policy that disables RTF/HTML and assign it to you. Of course, it affects stuff you paste, not everyone else unless your admin makes it "global"
