Indeed. Alas, any mathematical symbol will be garbled. Also, it 
behaves differently than the pasted image with the selection tool: 
manipulating its box will not enlarge the text, indeed it is just 
text so one can set the font size etc. text could always be made to 
have a shadow in Keynote so this is then expected behaviour. This is 
just text copying, since it does not respect mathematics it is 
useless for me.

Exactly my point. it did not use to be like this.

Not for me it isn't.
