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 products.

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.
