Quickly strip formatting from Safari's clipboard
Authored by: elpelso on Dec 16, '05 10:16:25AM

I have had success with selecting the text in Safari, and option-dragging it into wherever I need it. In FileMaker this results in the text taking the format that field is supposed to have, rather than the Safari formatting.

lpelso,

I did not know this trick you mentioned, and really appreciate it. Right now, I am doing a lot of copy-paste from Safari into FileMaker. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate your short & invaluable Option+Drag hint!

well as far as Filemaker goes a simple command-option V (paste with option down) does the trick for me convince any pasted text to behave as definde in the field I paste into
