Get rid of formatting when pasting text on Word
If you often copy and paste stuff from the internet or from another document, you would know how inconvenient and annoying it is to deal with formatting issues. When you copy text from a web page for example, Word automatically retains all the formatting like the font size, font color and spacing from the source. You can use the Paste Options that appears right after pasting something on the document and select Match Destination Formatting. However, if the text includes links, this method will not remove the hyperlink.
To strip all the formatting in Microsoft Word including links, highlight the text then press the shortcut key Ctrl + Spacebar. This will set the text to the default font, remove the formatting, and even remove links.
That’s very quick and easy!
