I liked formatting my e-mails in MS Word and then copy and paste them into Gmail. I did it, among other things, because I could control line spacing and text alignment (I prefer it justified). Gmail used to preserve the formatting, but now it doesn't. Is there a solution?

After pasting the formatted content from MS Word then select the pasted content and click on "quote" icon (shortcut Ctrl+Shift+9) from the formatting options above the send button as shown in the image below(highlighted text selected and 'quote' icon) would resolve the issue with a little side-effect of having a gray line to the left of the text indicating it is quoted text.
