An AppleScript to convert clipboard contents to plain text
Authored by: hamarkus on Feb 11, '04 02:12:57PM

It is Command-Option-I in Word.

This is something I use constantly, and really miss in a lot of apps, e.g. TextEdit (Shift-Option-Command-V does not work for me under 10.2.8, maybe a 10.3-only thing).
Using Plain Clip or the script menu, it is still a three step thing: 'press shortcut', 'switch back to current app', 'paste' or 'click on script menu', 'click on the actual script', 'paste'.

iKey or similar might help

I can't try this right now, but I would think one could write an AppleScript that performs this tip's line first, then performs a paste action (is that possible in AppleScript?). Then come up with a unique global key sequence in iKey (or other tool) to call that script.

Then it's just the usual two step process: Cmd+C to copy and custom-key-sequence to paste.
