Interesting insight into the BBcode, too. Aww, but even in its limited form it's useful. The above quote box was done in BBcode, although it didn't register that I tried to attribute the quote to supernal.
Huh, didn't realize we have fancier formatting such as tables and footnotes. The most I did was colors, and I've moved away from them due to the light/dark theme thing. Now that I think of it, having to momentarily switch themes seems trivial compared to losing rich text paste altogether. Yes, light theme users, I made a mini joke with the rich text paste there.
Could there be a function to remove just the background color? We can set text color to 'automatic', and remove bold, italic, underline, etc. So being able to strip rich test pastes of their background, while retaining over formatining such as bolds, colors, or lists. Or is that not possible for some reason?
Would it be better or worse if pasting rich text automatically pasted only the plain version of the text, but popped up an option to paste as rich text? Basically the inverse of what we have now.
