How do I copy paste text without the attributes pasting as well?

Copy link to clipboard

This is such a simple thing to do in any other tool (that I can think of at least). All I want to do is copy text from one text layer (A) to another layer (B) while ignoring the text attributes of (A). Basically I just want to paste "plain text". Has anyone found a workaround for this?

I can see that would be handy at times. But I'm not so sure it's always that easy. When I write something in say Wordpad, copy/paste into Pr or anything else, the formatting typically comes along. In most work I've done lo these many years, formatting is typically carried through.

 

In fact, it's most annoying to me when it doesn't.

 

Selecting the text and applying a 'base' Style to it would be the closest I can think of in the EGP. Not sure that would necessarily remove all things like an italicized or bolded bit though.
