IntelliJ IDEA 14 added built-in support (without additional plugins required) for copying text to external rich-text editors such as MS Word, OpenOffice Writer, Gmail, etc. allowing for preserving formatting.

These actions do not have default shortcuts assigned, but you define them in Keymap settings if you find yourselves using one of them often.
