PureText

With PureText you can copy text from a web page or a document and paste it as a simple text in another application, without the formatting. Using PureText is plain simple, use its hot-key to paste text instead of using the standard CTRL+V hot-key. To configure PureText, right-click on its tray icon and choose "Options" from the pop-up menu. The default hot-key is WINDOWS+V, but this can be altered. Please note PureText removes only the rich formatting from text. This includes the font face, font style (bold, italics, etc.), font color, paragraph styles (left/right/center aligned), margins, character spacing, bullets, subscript, superscript, tables, charts, pictures, embedded objects, etc. PureText would not modify the actual text, and will not remove or fix new-lines, carriage returns, tabs, or other white-space. It cannot be used to fix word-wrap or clean up paragraphs. PureText v2.0, a mere 28 KB utility, can be downloaded at http://stevemiller.net/downloads/puretext20_x86.zip
