Gutenberg editor on WordPress 5 misconfigure office word paste text

I have wordpress 5 installed since 2 days but, the first time I did edit and publish a post- this morning- I had to spend almost an hour fixing the mingled words on the post text that I did paste from my office word 365. Usually, since my posts are big and I don't like to write directly on wordpress editor, I use word from office 365 on my computer. I did participate on testing of a previous Gutenberg editor version and this issue did not happen. But Today wasn't the case in my 2 sites, what made me to install the classic editor instead. I personally like Gutenberg and don't find it complex or difficult to use and noticed that some previous disadvantages are fixed. But after pasting text written on office word to the editor, the text appears with lots of words mingled together, making it necessary to separate those words one by one what it not possible for me. So, please if you have any addvice to give about this - since it is not «write directly on wordpress editor» I appreciate. Many of my posts have more than 3000 words making it more comfortable to use my office word to do this. Thanks
