Formatting from Acrobat DC comments into Word

With Acrobat X I used to be able to copy text from comments and paste it into Word. It would adopt the same formatting as the text it was inserted into. This is hugely convenient as I handle a large number of Word docs in diffrent languages that I send out for language and QC checking.

Now, I have DC, it seems to insert the text in a different format , seemingly Segue UI 10. This is a real pain as I either have to copy the content into Notepad or isert it into Word and reformat.

Anyone have a solution to this. This is all on Windows 10 it doesn't happen on my Mac with Indesign or Illustrator.

 

Appears to be another example of how going to Acrobat DC is a step back in usefulness. Bring back X - it worked well and didn't annoy.

This is more Word than Acrobat.

 

You simply can't compare the behaviour of different programs (on different OS).

 

By passing via Notepad you simply strip all formatting hint. Are you using the same Word version than when you worked with Acrobat X?

Yes, I am using the same Word, I was using X until 3 weeks ago.. I realise that Notepad strips out the formatting and I did not need to use it with X but DC does not do this.
