Contextual Menu
Authored by: Krioni on Sep 05, '07 08:48:01PM

Some follow-up to my previous comment. Get OnMyCommand, then use OMCEdit (comes with it) to make a new command. Call it "Paste without Style" (no quotes), choose AppleScript for the Execution Mode, check the box that says "Paste Clipboard after Execution," then paste the script from the original hint in the text area labeled Command. Click the Save button.

That should be it. The default place for OnMyCommand contextual menu items is to be in a submenu of the OnMyCommand menu, but you can choose instead to put it in the First Level by choosing that from the Location popup when making/editing this item in OMCEdit.

Hope that helps. I didn't do Copy without Style because (1) I'm not sure I see the point, since I don't care what's in the clipboard, (2) it's not as quick a comment, since I'd have to tweak the script, and (3) once you've pasted without style once using this method, you've converted the clipboard to plain text, losing any style anyway.

So, not perfect, but gets the biggest part of what's useful.

Thanks, OnMyCommand is slick and does the trick! (Rob, I nominate it for a Pick of the Week!) And I was able to download a command someone already created, "Paste plain text" which looks to be the pbpaste | pbcopy method.
