Quickly strip formatting from Safari's clipboard
Authored by: osxpounder on Dec 16, '05 11:05:25AM

A great tip, because it'll save me some wear & tear on the hands. Until you pointed this out, I'd been keeping a TextEdit plain text document page open just so I could paste, copy, then paste again into Mail. Thanks!

Because that's not the same, just give both methods a try with web content...

I was replying to osxpounder mail copy and paste.

In this case it seems it would be easier to make the mail plain text.

I do note however, this does not get rid of images caught in the selection.

Also as rob points out there are past options in some apps. Mail is one of them.
