Has someone a script at hand to paste text without formatting? E.g. to copy paragraph from MS Word and paste without extra formatting data?

That's actually quite a handy idea, can't believe I hadn't thought of it!

I made a second Paste action with a modifier and added this script:
Of course, keep in mind that this will replace the formatted clipboard entry with a text only version.

Haha, I tried exactly the same thing at first. It turned out that Adobe Fireworks was the culprit as it puts EMF image metadata to the clipboard when copying text. But in MS Word it just works fine.

Thanks for the help!

You can use a 3rd application like CopyQ.
It has a keyboard shortcut for "Paste as plain text".
Then assign this in S+.

Thanks, but I don't want to use another application just for this.
