Atto “Paste Special” plugin was designed to reduce or eliminate the extraneous html markup code generated when content is pasted into the html editor directly from an external source (vs. typed in directly). Recent versions have expanded upon this functionality to allow users to insert tables, to keep original styling elements, and to paste in html code that hasn’t been “cleansed.” While the output produced by this plugin ably addresses the needs of those users who have come to expect these options from a text editor, the plugin’s UI is unintuitive and buggy, making it difficult for the user to consistently achieve the desired results.
The plugin has been maintained well, and the maintainers are responsive. Coming from the UMN, it is highly likely that the plugin will continue to be maintained.
