I am not clear if I am understanding your problem fully, but often I will copy text from a word document, then paste it into a plain text editor like notepad and copy my text from there.

That way any strange formatting that may have occurred in word is not carried across.  You can then use your styles in the tny mce editor, or which ever editor you choose and there is no odd behaviour.

I notice often that when copying from word and pasting directly into the article that there is strange formatting and when you try to overide it it doesn't work.

I hope this helps

From what you said here

a font -> example : Times new roman
It dosent always works on my site, somtimes it shanged this to somthing else
ore the size of the font change...

Are you selecting any of the predeifned formatting that comes from your CSS of your template?

Like If I select a peice of text and apply a font not used in my CSS if the format is set to say paragraph on save it turns if from my chosen font to the default.

You could try adding in fonts you want to use to your css file for text.

This might solve this

As panagiotiss stated you can click on the "Paste with Word" button on JCE and it strips out all the formatting

It does what snowball77 mentioned about copying from word to notepad then to site.
