An AppleScript to convert the clipboard to plain text

I'm embarrassed at how long it took me to find this...

There is actually a paste command built right into OS X that will reformat any text on the clipboard to match the style of the document you are pasting it into.

Under the Edit menu, simply select Paste and Match Style (CMD+OPT+SHIFT+V)!

An AppleScript to convert the clipboard to plain text

I love it when a convoluted hint like this is answered by a simple keystroke.

That keystroke combination does not exist in many application contexts. To name a few: Tinderbox, Safari, Skim, EndNote, and Word.

Just because a hint does not apply to you does not mean it is valuable to others.

I love it when users with very little experience deign to critique the value of utilities they have no use for.
