There are going to be a bunch of ways to resolve this. I suppose ideally we'd alter the product to try to handle this particular case, so if you can let me know what needs to be in the Word doc to trigger the multiple carriage returns when pasting I will submit that and ask that we try to handle it automatically in a future release.

In the meantime I'll see if I can come up with something that gets around the issue. Probably a script. I assume getting some kind of solution quickly (so you can get on with things) is more important to you at this point than how it is done, and perhaps even more important than completely automating and hiding the process? ie: If you need to manually run a script that might be OK.
