PlaintextPaste

PlaintextPaste is a small InputManager plugin that adds “Paste Plain Text” to the Edit menu of all OS X native applications. It’s useful for several reasons. When you copy text in Mac OS X, the formatting options such as font, size, and color come along with the text. I find that, most of the time, I don’t need or want anything but the text, especially when pasting into iChat. With PlaintextPaste installed, you can hit Command-C to copy text like normal, then hit Command-Shift-V to paste only the text, or Command-V to paste it with formatting. The second reason I like PlaintextPaste is that it has the option to swap the current selection with the clipboard contents – handy for programming. On top all of that, it’s free.

  2. This kind of killed a lot of applications on my computer. It was keeping Omniweb from running without crashing, the same with Adium and several others. I emailed the Omnigroup folks, they advised me to disable it, and voila, everything works fine again! YMMV, of course.

  3. It wasn’t just Omniweb, but it reacted the most poorly. Adium and several other apps also bit it. Oddly enough, the Apple(tm) apps handled it fine, while all those who didn’t were non-Apple.
