Ability to paste text "content" and not formatting

I'd like to be able to copy text and paste it over other text without pasting the formatting.

E.g. I have 2 point text objects, both have different appearances.

If I highlight the text from the first and paste it over the second, the appearance gets pasted as well.

I'd like to be able to keep the second object's appearance intact.

Hate to bring up Corel DRAW again, but Corel lets you do what I'm asking for.

Seems to me if you want to copy some text and include its appearance then you'd just duplicate the whole object.

But if I use the Text Tool and highlight the text and then copy, it does the same exact thing.

I little workaround would be to copy the text you want, paste it into notepad or any ASCII editing app, then copy paste it back to illustrator (the text in notepad doesn't contain any formatting information). Not the quickest way to do it I would admit.

A better and more serious would be the software CMD + SHIFT + V to paste without formatting text. Just as it is in other programs...

Illustrator design team is as stubborn as I do not know what ...

I fully support the proposal Johna!

This should be an option when you paste the text.

I'd like to know the reason for not adding this by now.

Oh wait... we don't have many other options, right?

I agree. This option is very often needed. On the base and they know that the other teams Adobe.

I understand that sometimes it is better not to move the code small reasons, because this could in turn introduces big problems.

Code was an old, complicated, and probably very few people knew of what they exactly consist.

But now that he is re-written 64-bit such things should be immediately implemented.

I need this to not think about Ilustartor as a separate, backward planet of Adobe.

Regards for All!

Completely agree on this one. Same goes for Photoshop.

It's a no-brainer! the ctrl/cmd+shift+v keyboard shortcut is available.

UNIFORMIZE your apps. For several years you've only taken mouse steps towards this
