How do I copy/paste text from Word to Jira

We use Microsoft Word for Mac (15.27) at my office. I'm quite frequently needing to copy text from Word into a JIRA issue I'm creating. Every time I try, JIRA converts the text to an image and attaches it to the story. How do I make it paste the text as text into the story description?
