Hi, how can I paste in Illustrator text without the formatting?

I need to fast paste as a plain text with some shortcut or similar trick.

Thanks

Try the generic shortcut for pasting text without formatting

Cmd+Shift+V //MAC

Ctrl+Shift+V //Win

No, it doesn't work in Illustrator.
Although the title is incorrect, it is the same topic:

illustrator.uservoice - topic: Paste with Formatting (Cmd+Shift+V)

This seems to be a very old reported feature, don't know how soon this might be taken up for implementation

What formatting? All text in Illustrator is formatted.

Set up a paragraph style, or change the default font set up (you'll need to edit the default profile you use in New Document Profiles)

Marco,

 

Maybe (too) far from what is bearable, but how about pasting into a plain text editor, then copy from that?
