One of the most usefull features i use in thunderbird, is the abillity to paste
raw text with "Paste without formatting". More often than not, I find myself
pasting text from somewhere else, and OpenOffice does not handle that very well.
Most of the times I would like to have the text in the font and size that the
current document is in, however what I'm pasting is in some different font and I
end up using a lot of time correcting fonts and sizes.

My suggestion would be to add an entry to the right click menu, simply saying
"Paste unformatted" or something like that. The function would be to paste the
raw text and no formatting at all, thus jusing the default formatting in the

I know that you can go through the Edit->Paste Special menu (or the shortcut),
but that is much more cumbersome than a simple right click and select from menu,
so I'm hoping for this to be implemented.

Thanks in advance.

A more general enhancement request already in bug 7449 which is a superb feature.
