    Default PlainText - gets rid of unwanted formatting

    You may be already aware about Firefox plugin that copies text without formatting, now here is a general purpose Windows application to do just that - PlainText.

    This is a small, light, unobtrusive and free (GPL) application that resides in the system tray and removes any frosting from your text, leaving you with a plain vanilla formatting



    For more information and download, please go to the projects home - PlainText home site.

    thanks for this good utility, but if you are using Office 2007, you can easily remove the formatting of copied text. just select the text in your document and in styles click on down arrow and select clear formatting option from there.

    Now the text is shown in plain text.

    well with Office 2010 this problem also get solved as there are 3 options available before you paste. like keep the whole formatting, thinned formatting and clear formatting....so, in future there will be no need of copying it in notepad first also..........
