Make 'paste and match style' the default behavior
Authored by: Sesquipedalian on Jul 11, '09 12:55:47PM
  1. Why mess around with the command line for this? The Keyboard system preferences pane does the same job, is nice and easy to use, and carries no risk of typos making messes of anything.

  2. I only ever really get annoyed with the default paste behaviour in iWork apps, where making documents with consistent styles is the point. So instead of customizing the keyboard shortcuts for all applications, I just did it for Pages, Numbers, and Keynote.

    This means also that I don't have to deal with side effects in other applications.

Oh, I missed the bit where the original poster said why one might want to use the command line...

Also, if you want to use the command line to do this, but only for individual applications, replace .GlobalPreferences in the original hint with com.apple.iWork.Pages, or whatever the preferences .plist is for your application. These are generally stored in ~/Library/Preferences, if you need to find the right plist first.
