Copying text content with CTRL+C to WYSIWIG inserts figmeta

When I select text layer and press CTRL+C to copy it’s content to WYSIWIG editor (I use Wordpress and Elementor builder) I’ve got this https://i.imgur.com/UiRFdrh.png and I copied the simple text layer with content “About”

Yes, I can copy text with this button https://i.imgur.com/W0UGvXT.png and all works fine, but this is not very handy to switch between tabs with a mouse while your are codding. In my opinion this CTRL+C should work exectly like button above. Or maybe is there a way to add some hotkey (like CTRL+SHIFT+C) to copy only text content of the layer?

I’m also experiencing this. :pensive:

Try to paste not with Ctrl+V, but with Ctrl+Shift+V.

Wow, so easy solution, sorry for dummy question and thanks for answer!

Pasting without format isn’t a solution; it’s a work around. Better than nothing, but how to disable this nonsense?

You can easily destroy servers with that. I copied a few lines of text and Figma added nearly 400k characters to it. Totally crashed the server without a way to notice.
