Currently, when one attempts to copy-and-paste text from a Google Doc into a StoryMap the text may later unexpectedly disappear and cannot be recovered from within the StoryMap. For example, see the thread under Pasted Bulleted Text from Google Docs Disappears Unexpectedly, as well as other posts about "disappearing text" in StoryMaps.
While the root cause of the issue may lay with bad HTML formatting on Google's part, it would be very helpful if Esri found a way to support the normal cut-and-paste workflow between Docs and StoryMaps.
As a Google organization this is very problematic as Google Docs is the default editor for people crafting their story text outside of StoryMaps. Furthermore, the failure mode here is not obvious to users, so self-discovery of the suggested workaround is not intuitive.
Perhaps the paste step on the StoryMaps side could always be handled as paste without formatting or as plain text?
