Plain text copy and paste - no more notepad

PureText is a great little utility that allows you to create a hotkey that clears any formatting from the text currently in the clipboard.

As developers, especially when working on websites, we spend a lot of time copying and pasting content. It's pretty frustrating when formatting is copied with the text i.e. when you copy from a webpage to a Word document you get al the styles as well.

For years, like many others I am sure, I've added an extra paste and copy step via notepad. This clears the formatting from the source content before making the final paste into the target document. No longer though, since discovering PureText my life has changed.
