"Import from Word" Answered

I've been trying to post my most recent instructable and all has gone smoothly except for the fact that the "paste from word" option does not work. I am using word 2010 on a windows 7 computer with chrome, firefox, and IE 9. All three browsers will only import the plain text format of word documents that I type up rather than the fully formatted versions. It's not that I cant format everything I need via the main text input screen, its just that frankly the scrony forum post-type entry field sucks for writing well organized instructables.
Please fix this!

Highlight the text in the word document, click "copy".

Go to the text box of the Instructable, right-click in the box and select "paste".

I've tried the basics. The whole reason I was attempting to use the "paste from word" button is because the standard [aste options only paste plain text as well.
