Hey everyone, is there a keyboard shortcut I'm missing to be able to paste text from A to B without B inheriting A's format/style? 

 

I've been using Sketch and Figma for awhile and only just picked up Illustrator again so I'm relearning keyboard shortcuts. Appreciate the help!

Yeah I saw this but since it was from 5 years ago I was hoping they fixed this issue for the newest version 😞 Ah well
