Paste and Match Style
Authored by: spiff on Oct 04, '07 04:29:01PM

A fairly simple and fast approach involves keeping TextEdit open.

Open up TextEdit (Applications:TextEdit) and then put it in 'text mode' only (cmd-shift-T)

take the formatted text you want, paste it (cmd-v) into text edit and all the formatting is wiped. Without clicking a button, do cmd-c and you've got text free of bold/italic/font-size etc. and it's now just pure text.

no applet needed, just a mouse-click/cmd-tab to TextEdit, paste/copy, cmd-tab back to the app/web site/whatnot.
