Hi,

Right click where you want to paste your text.

Then select Paste Special.

Then Text.

However, I prefer PureText to remove formatting from my pasted text:

PureText

Then you can paste your text with the Windows key plus V (or whatever you choose).

There are also other similar tools out there.

Best regards

Winfried

Thanks for the tip on PureText, Winfried Reng‌. I did not know this one. PureText can come in handy as a great tool in general as it works with all Windows programs. I didn't know it and after trying it for only a few hours now, I already love it.

For FM I simply changed the setting in the maker.ini to:

ClipboardFormatsPriorities=UNICODE TEXT, TEXT, FILE, MIFW, MIF, RTF, OLE 2, META, EMF,  DIB, BMP
