Prevent Word from Including Bullet Letter when Copying Text?

I'm copying quite a bit of text from Word into a text-based application, line by line. The word text is structured like this: > 1. Topic a. Item A > b. Item B When I highlight Item A, copy, and then paste into the text-based application, I get a. Item A rather than just Item A as desired. How can I prevent Word from including the bullet letter when copying?
