Have you examined the demo I linked in my previous response to this thread: http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/editor/examples/cleaningwordformatting/defaultcs.aspx
? When the StripFormattingOnPaste or StripFormattingOptions property is set (they are equivalent, but you should use StripFormattingOptions), this dialog from the screenshot is suppressed and the value of the property determines what content is removed. Here is a sample editor that produces nice, clean HTML without much visual formatting:
"MSWordNoMargins, MSWordNoFonts, Css, Font, ConvertWordLists"
You may want to remove the Css and Font properties to keep colors and fonts from Word.
Perhaps a point of interest is that when ContentAreaMode=DIV with Chrome and Firefox a paste dialog will be shown because with an editable div these browsers do not exposes the needed paste events.
As for old versions - this property has been available for a long time, yet major improvements were made in Q1 2013 (http://blogs.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/posts/13-04-17/seamless-paste-from-word-with-the-improved-telerik-asp.net-editor
), so I strongly advise that you upgrade to the latest version.
