Default Pasting numbers:

I have asked already on Final Cut Pro forums and everyone suggests coming here instead to pose a current issue I have with copy/paste functionality in my Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac.

So the deal is:

I need to paste numbers from my Final Cut Pro timeline into a word document, I have a table with 1500 rows and each row is split into many columns and many of the columns need the numbers pasted in a very exact format.

So I created a style for pasting into the boxes that require this format, which is Times New Roman, font 11, Condensed by X - However, when I copy the number from my time line box in FCP and paste it into word it is pasted in everything the style says except font, it comes out in Lucida Grande. It is still font 11, and it is still condensed by X - so 2/3 of my style preferences work.

I know of smart paste, but I am having to paste upwards of 5000 times in a single document, and as this is my job I would much rather find a method via shortcut or auto-format than having to copy, then go to edit, special paste and so forth.

I have tried making any number of styles, but no matter how I tweak them, be it paragraph, character or table style, the numbers always, always, always paste in goddam Lucida Grande - it's just using up 5 seconds of my time each paste but it adds up, 5 seconds becomes a heck of a lot more when you understand just how much I have to copy/paste.

the only thing that has ever worked is using the pop-up that appears upon paste and selecting "match destination setting' but this doesn't pop up all the time, be it bugged, lazy or whatever, it only pops up every so often.

Is there really no way for word to understand that how the table is formatted through style is how I want it to be - period. I'm not speaking AI I'm speaking auto-format, the preferences I've put in time and again but still, every time, Lucida Grande.

Anyone got 2 cents, 1 cent, or any amount of pennies for thoughts on this matter?
