Easily paste and match style anywhere
Authored by: squarefrog on Mar 07, '11 08:16:42AM
I created an automator service for this. Then assigned a keyboard shortcut. Instant stripped plain text copy!

on run {input, parameters}
	
	tell application "System Events"
		keystroke "c" using command down
	end tell
	
	delay 0.05
	
	try
		set the clipboard to string of (the clipboard as record)
	on error errMsg
		display dialog errMsg
	end try
	
	return input
end run
The delay is there to allow time for converting to plain text. I now just highlight text and press: cmd+shift+c to copy plain text.
