Paste and Match Style

My workflow includes a lot of copy and pasting of texts into documents. Alas, the formatting often comes with and I have to adjust and rearrange. You can paste without formatting, but that’s not necessarily what I want. More often, I want paste and match style.

Ally MacDonald points out a simple way Mac users can make pasting without formatting the default:

Want to improve your quality of life in 5 seconds?

1. Go to System Preferences

2. Keyboard

3. App Shortcuts

4. All Applications –> add Paste and Match Style” ⌘V


This change re-maps the default Paste” keyboard shortcut to paste and match style.

What a timesaver.
