Description abel_enthoven 2007-10-29 21:10:20 UTC
I think it would be nice if the edit-menu had, besides 'Paste' and 'Paste 
special' a menu-item to 'Paste as plain text'. When copying text from the 
internet or other sources, it's often not handy to keep the formatting of the 
original. In my case, about 90% of the pasting I perform is done as 'Paste 
special/Plain text'. Three clicks away for an option used that often in my 
opinion is a bit to much. I think for a lot of people this would be a 'extra 
feature' comparing OpenOffice to MS Office. 
I have put this issue under 'Word Processor', but this goes for all OpenOffice

Reassigned to "requirements".

Requested is an additional menu entry like it is available in Mozilla
Thunderbird "paste without formatting".

Perhaps it is good news that we are going to add a keyboard shortcut for "Paste
unformatted" soon.
