There is no direct method to solve this problem, but you can achieve it with the little trick in this article. Please do as follows.
1. Select a blank cell (here I select cell D2) in the new range you need to paste the copied data into, then enter formula =MOD(ROW(A1),2).
2. Keep selecting cell D2, drag the Fill Handle down to the column cells. See screenshot:
3. Then select cell D1, click Data > Filter to enable the Filter function.
4. Click the drop-down arrow of cell D1, then filter the column by number 1 and finally click the OK button. See screenshot:
5. Now the alternate blank rows are filtered out. Please copy the data, select the filtered range, and then press Ctrl + V keys simultaneously to paste the data.
6. Click Data > Filter to turn off the Filter function, and then delete the helper column as you need. See screenshot:

I have Microsoft Office 2010, so whichever version of excel comes with that I am not quite sure but either way it doesn't work. When I paste it pastes to ALL rows. So, when I paste I only see half of what I pasted, when I turn the filter off I see everything I pasted =/
