It seems like every program has a different keyboard shortcut for Paste and Match Style or they have the option to use it, but no shortcut is assigned by default. Some apps don’t even have the option to paste and match style. It becomes very frustrating.
I decided to whip up this quick AppleScript that reads in your clipboard contents, strips out the formatting and pastes the resulting text to your cursor location.
I saved this AppleScript to a permanent location and assigned it a Global Keyboard Shortcut with Alfred. I chose the shortcut:
^ + ⌘ + V
I haven’t tested it in every program but it worked fine stripping the formatting from Safari content and pasting it in to OmniFocus as well as all my text editors.
