I was just wondering if anyone know of a Windows application that will remove formatting from any text in the clipboard? So if I copy something from Word into another document, the content is pasted as the original text without formatting. I want this to work no matter what application I paste into.
Puretext does everything you want - and only that.
I achieve this by pasting in to Notepad (or your text-only editor of choice) and re-copying.
Works when copying from anywhere to anywhere.
But, I imagine this isn't quite what you're looking for - but it works...
As with many small tasks, AutoHotkey is perfect for the job!
^#v:: ClipboardTemp = %ClipBoardAll% ClipBoard = %ClipBoard% Send ^v sleep, 30 ClipBoard = %ClipboardTemp% Return
Would paste de-formatted text when you pressed control-win-v
That's a hotkey that works in many cases. (e.g. I just tried it in Chrome with GMail.)
