    How would I get pasted content into the RadEditor to always "Paste Plain Text".  I want the exact same thing to happen as when I right click and select "Paste Plain Text"

    I am unable to find the right StripFormattingOptions to simulate it exactly.  Removing all Word Content leaves other HTML and <p> tags.  If I remove "AllExceptNewLines" it puts a double space (two BR tags) every place there should only be a singe space.

    When I right click and choose Paste Plain Text it correctly puts a single <br /> tag after each line. 

    I attached #1 the original (email in this case).  #2 I attached the way the content looks using right click "Paste Plain Text" and #3 I attached what it looks like when removing "AllExceptNewLines"

    Hi Eli,

    The described issue is logged as a bug. You can follow the progress of the task with this feedback portal item.

    You can workaround this by manipulating the content that is pasted via the OnClientPasteHtml event:
    <telerik:RadEditor runat="server" ID="RadEditor1"
    <script type="text/javascript">
        function OnClientPasteHtml(editor, args) {
            var commandName = args.get_commandName();
            var contentToPaste = args.get_value();
            if (commandName === "Paste") {
                contentToPaste = contentToPaste.replace(/(<br\/>)+/gi, "<br/>");
