Paste HTML into text editor

Hi
I’m trying to copy HTML from one text editor to another using a workflow, to avoid the user having to CTRL-C and CTRL-V.

CTRL-C/CTRL-V actually does deliver the functionality I want. See three steps in screenshots below.



When I try to replicate this using a clipboard plugin, the raw HTML is pasted instead. The text editor (and I’ve tried various ones) doesn’t interpret pasted text as new HTML and format it as such.

What’s the best way to replicate the browser copy/paste functionality ?
