Lots of the content that is going to be posted on my site, is already written and has basic plain text formatting.

But whenever the content is pasted into a Bard field, the formatting is lost completely and all that's left is a huge block of text without any paragraphs etc.

With long content, it's going to be a real tough job to just get the content formatted again before one can start actually adding bold titles, images etc.

Usually the text comes in .txt files, so plain text (But I also tried pasting as rich text and from Word with the same results, lost formatting).

Is there a way how I can keep the text pasted in a bard field formatted as is? Because I would really like to use Bard fields and not Redactor (where the formatting is actually kept in tact)
