When I copy a chunk of type that has been formatted with character styles into another text box all of the formatting is lost. There has to be a way around this.

Hi there. Unfortunately, it's always been like that. If you'd like to copy the formatting, you copy the whole text box. I normally split headings, copy and other stuff in separate boxes, instead of formatting within the same, as the text engine within Xd is pretty flimsy.
