Steps to reproduce:

  2. Select all of them as you would want to copy text
  3. Try to copy and paste text to some input that does not recognize HTML (textarea, Atom editor, or anything else)

Desired output: only text is pasted
Current output: text is pasted together with HTML, CTRL+SHIFT+V does not remove it

For me, actually, text is pasted with all HTML, including <p> tags stripped, resulting in run-on paragraphs with no space separators. This is on WP 5.1.

This is an issue that needs to be handled in the block editor, so I'm going to close this ticket in favour of the existing Gutenberg issue GB9018.
