One of the most annoying things in windows is, when you copy and paste something it takes the formatting with it. There is no alternative paste with only text. Some applications give you that option but in general you also copy the formatting with the text.
It seems I am not the only one that got annoyed by that. Today I stumbled over PureText. This light weighted little fellow allows you to have a hot key defined that pastes ONLY the text. Wish Microsoft would include something like that in Windows
I wish you well
